Thanks! Go for it dude! I might have to warn you though, it's an addicting hobby!
Funny you should say that because I'm working on one of my next projects (brushless micro) right now!

When I first started this project, I was just as confused as you are about this! Because how confusing I know it can be, Ill try to give you as much info as possible. For a "regular" led strip, you can only achieve single colors such as rgbw. Using this strips will only result in a solid red strip, a solid green strip and so on, though you could flash between colors. To be able to perform animations, you will need to buy individually addressable led strips. These will have a Positive tab, a Negative Tab and a Data tab. The data tab can be connected to an arduino or other board to address each individual LED, meaning you can change the color of each led to perform animations, in this case a cycle through the rainbow. The best place to find these would be adafruits Neopixel, but...see more »When I first started this project, I was just as confused as you are about this!

The best place to find these would be adafruits Neopixel, but since they can get quite expensive, I bough a WS2821b LED strip. In summary there is a difference between LED strips, if you want to perform animations, you will have to buy a strip where each LED can be separately controlled (normally called individually addressable LED strip)
Im working on it right now!
No kidding? Thats a neat trick I'll try it out sometime!
Thats weird... They were working an hour ago. Thanks for letting me know, ill fix it!

Whoa! This is the biggest coincidence im in the process of making one right now, working on the cnc part for the past week!This is inspiring me to finish it, and I love the joystick idea!Yours looks great!
Sure! I was planning on posting an instructable,i'm still kind of shocked someone else had the same idea for the cnc contest! Great minds think alike!

How to make a low cost Mobile Robot platform
I cant think of a book right now, but I learned from instructables other people made and mostly visiting the remote control page on instructables. The real cost will be a lot more expensive, but there are shortcuts; Ive seen people carve frames out of popsicle sticks glued together for instance. I would recommend not adding FPV to the quad on your first build, just buying the micro scisky, the motors, and a dsm2 TX (about $120). Setting up the scisky might be difficult for your first quad build, but with an electrical engineering degree, somehow I think you'll manage :) Let me know how it goes!
Your going to love it! I use it way more than I thought I would. TimothyJ999 is right though, I had no idea the build instructions were on the micro sd card. I had to build it looking at the websites picture it was a nightmare!
Finally someone smart...
The increaded blade area means better thrust but more energy. Plus it looks sweet.
