Because of your replies, I purchased 3 more items:

Power Distribution Board

I know I already had a power distribution board but this one seemed a lot more plug and play friendly and was suggested on a guide I was reading so I splurged.

So my frame came in and I put it together last night (getting excited). Also, my MultiWii came in. I would love to start plugging in the software but I have no idea where to start or what wires go where. I am not asking for anyone to show me where to connect things, but a website link would be great! I couldn't really find anything on Google about diagrams for my particular model. I did find these links on the MultiWii ebay sellers page:

 The main website of the owner of the MultiWii project is http://www.multiwii.com/
  The main RC groups thread where all discussions are held can be found  here, 
  Another very good post for initial set-up and basic questions from Shikra  can be found here , 
  The source code can be found on the google code repository here ,

Editing because I found some help!:

So the above picture is what I have, I connected it, found the arduino website to download software, found a config file to upload, now I am editing the parameters in the config.h section. Here is where I am stuck, what is the best way to find out what board I should select? All the ebay site says that I bought this from is that its MWC (MWC MultiWii SE V2.5 Multirotor Multicopter Flight Controller)

So I guess I was trying to connect to the flight controller with arduino software (I'm an idiot). Ok, so I guess I have to wait for my arduino to come in and then program the software with that. I am assuming that I will use the "Crius MultWii SE", it's the closest matching to any of those in the list.

So my question remains, how do I plug all this stuff together? Is there a diagram I can follow somewhere? I am at a loss as to what wires go where.
