Full Write up on this build

First impressions are good, the chassis itself is good, there are metal hubs and turn buckles. The Servo mount and receiver mount look a bit cheap!

Servo mount and RX housing to the right are a bit cheap looking!

But overall looks really good!

So my plan with this is to add some electronics I already have they are all cheap Chinese electronics below is how I intend to mount them

The motor and ESC I will be using is as follows
