I'm starting the build myself too. I just ordered some electronics. It was around 175$ without the transmitter (I still didn't decide what to buy). Here is my spreadsheet with the parts I considered based on suggestions in the comments and other forums. The ones in green are ones I selected. Crossed out are items I already ordered. I hope this helps but please keep in mind I've not tested this setup yet.
