As you read through this page please be sure to refer to the glossary, which contains definitions of many of the components on this page. The Bell AVR drone kit includes all of the components required to build your own autonomous quadcopter. The kit provides a frame, motors, electronic speed controllers, flight controller, and several additional peripherals. This section will cover a majority of the components included for basic assembly of the drone.
Boxes in AVR Kit
The AVR kit will contain the following boxes. Be sure to read the label on each box to gain a high level understanding of the components inside.

Components for Advanced Drone Assembly
In the second phase of the build you will be adding several peripherals to your AVR drone, installing software, and configuring parameters for better performance. These modifications will allow you to fly in a mode known as “Position Hold” where the drone will maintain position and altitude. This will lead to a much better experience when it comes to competition day.
