I am building my first quad, and i have made up the following list of parts required, request the pros to please confirm if its perfect or do i need to change anything.

1) 04 Nos.   MOTORS: TURNIGY 2217; 1050 Kv; 20A

2) 04 Nos.   ESC: TURNIGY Plush 25amp Speed Controller

3) 01 Nos.   BATTERY:  ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 3S1P 20C

4) 01 Nos.   PROCESSOR: Arduino Uno

5) 06 Nos.   PROPELLERS: 1047SF Combo

6) 01 Nos.   FRAME: Made up of Aluminium / wood

7) 01 Nos.   RADIO CONTROLLER: Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter

Also found this motor http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__17922__NX_4005_650kv_Brushless_Quadcopter_Motor.html

Could someone help me decide which one is better (between the two motors)?

I know there are umpteen number of threads on the forum with the same discussion, however i just wanted to double check if my setup was right.

I am also searching for a suitable camera, please suggest options. and does FPV mean live streaming? because that is what i am looking for.

Thank you for your replies.

High spirits we have: gravity we flout.

As a rule of thumb, a motor with bigger diameter will usually be more suitable for multirotor application than the motor with smaller diameter. Bigger diameter motor generate more torque, hence can change speed quickly, which is important for stability.
