A Puzzle for me - Is it for you?

A few photo’s of some bits (all new) I found in a box. I “believe” they’re from a self-build drone project. Am I right?

Can anyone put a reasonable and realistic value on them?

Would anyone like to buy them?

Dji f450 frame sunny sky motor and Simon k esc…

Seriously old school kit… total value is almost nothing. Sorry


Thank you @Wyntrblue you’ve given me exactly what I wanted. Honest, clear and from the hip. Much appreciated.

I would build it if I were you. Only need a flight controller and radio gear. Shouldn’t cost a lot and would good for a laugh

Sadly, I haven’y got the foggiest. Seriously…

Second-hand prices:

It looks like a DJI 450 clone frame £10-15

4 small motors possibly 2212 920kv - £30

4 30amp ESCs - £30

4 cheap plastic props and a pair of battery straps - £4

Other people may differ in their opinions. If the parts were genuine DJI then they would be worth a little more but at the very least the bits you have there will need a flight controller, battery, receiver and transmitter to complete and, optionally a camera - either FRV with transmitter and receiver or a GoPro style in a cheap gimbal. By the time you have spent around £250 or more you will have a quad that will take a fair amount of setting up and tweaking that will be well outperformed by a secondhand, ready-to-fly Phantom 2 or 3 from eBay.

But that is just my opinion :nerd_face:

Almost at the back of the loft cupboard we have this. They’re compatible aren’t they?

Again value please just for a guide. I know ultimately it’s what someone’s willing to pay but thanks for your contribution guys.

A very good make, not very common over here. Cheapest new I found was £269 plus post but that included 2 receivers. Take a look at this review to get an idea of what it’s capable of.

I would stick it on eBay at £99 start plus post and see what happens. Make sure it charges up ok after it’s been dormant for a while!

As for compatibility, you don’t yet have anything for it to be compatible with. You need a receiver on the UAV to accept its commands.

It has nine channels, for a UAV four are used for up/down, yaw, left/right and forward/back. Then you have channels spare for gimbal, flight mode, landing gear etc. Although the transmitter has nine channels you only need a receiver with the number of channels you will be using, for a simple quad six is sufficient.

Have another root around in the loft :sunglasses:


I concur. Me Lord.

Cheers lads. I’ll let you know what happens. Won’t get round to it until Monday though…

Those aren’t sunny sky motors so probably worth at most £5 each second hand. I bought a box of bits like that in April. 2 frames 8 motors 3 flight controllers, 4 receivers loads of props, 2 telemetry sets. 2 fpv tx’s . Plus other bits. I paid £30 inc postage. So that’s an indication of what they are worth.

@stevesb Did you manage to make anything out of the bits?

Not advertised anywhere apart from on here yet, so ‘No, not yet’

I’m part way through building a F450 fpv quad which I can use with my existing tx , a cheap action camera and my existing 3s batteries. Just need some goggles.

My DJI goggles are for sale but currently held for another member’s approval when the weather clears. Probably not compatible with you video TX anyway…

Thanks, but I will be looking for some fatsharks when the time comes. For the amount of use they will get I don’t want to be spending a fortune. Not that yours will be. :grinning:
