Startup equipment

I already chose a list of the equipment that I would need for a new HexaCopter, Do you think anything should be changed here?

Tarot FY690S Hexacopter Frame Set
DJI Naza-M V2 Multirotor Gyro System w/ GPS
3 x 1147 Carbon Propellers (CW and CCW)
6 x Hobbywing Platinum 30A-OPTO Pro ESC (A Type)
6 x Storm AS-2216 High Power Brushless Motor (880kv)
Brushless Motor Connector (3.5mm Banana)
Futaba T8J + R2008SB 8-Ch 2.4GHz S-FHSS Radio System
SKYRC B6 Ultimate 200W X 2 Digital Multifunctional Charger

Storm 22.2V 5000(5300)mAh 25C LiPo Battery Pack (For the Hexacopter)
Storm 7.4V 1800mAh 25C LiPo Battery Pack (For 4F200) (For the controller)

Are the batteries and Controller also compatible with the whole sale?
What other things will be needed for the assembly? Parts and cables.
What tools would I need?
Are there videos that can help me assemble this as I am a beginner at this

PS: I am ordering those for about 1550 CAD, from Shipping will cost 112 CAD
Any advice on the source too? I live in Canada, Ottawa

Thanks in Advance

Your flight battery could be overrated at 22.2v (6S) and could lead to some very expensive damage, check that your ESCs and motors are rated for 6S.
Recommend that you go here and learn all about your FC first
they also have a tutorial for construction of their S800 which would be of assistance. Apart from that there are many YouTube videos for construction of many types of multirotors, construction tools are common to most types. Just be sure to follow the DJI instructions for mounting of their controller.
Not enough time in the day for all my crazy ideas, I'm not slow, I'm just pacing myself
