So, I am building a hexacopter and I have picked my parts, but not yet ordered them. I am pretty sure this is a good configuration, but I would appreciate any thoughts and/or ideas to improve or tweak it. It is meant to be able to handle medium weight camera and sensor equipment. It will also be used in subzero conditions. It should be able to go long distance with video feed, but I have not made up my mind on what to use for that yet. It should also be able to fly to GPS coordinates automatically. Parts: - S550 hexacopter frame - 2830 1000kv outrunners - Turnigy plush-32 30A w/BEC speed controllers - 10x4.5 propellers - PX4 pixhawk 2.4.8 32bit, ardupilot (gps, osd, 500mw telemetry) - 5000mah 4S 60C battery (might use 2) Total weight with everything listed above & wiring is ca 3000g. It is absolutely not ment to be a racer of any kind. I value stability and flight time. I do plan on 3D printing custom parts and to make protective and aerodynamic casings/covers.
Hello, I have been getting extremely into drones over the past few years. I have become a pretty decent pilot and I feel that I am ready for an upgrade. I bought an Open-Source Cheerson CX-20 to "build" to understand more about how UAVs work (not just how to fly them). I've went ahead and done some normal upgrades like a gimbal, landing gear, and props but now I need some help. I would like to get a bigger battery to be able to support the added weight but I have no idea what to get? I am also looking to put telemetry into the drone and not quite sure what all I need. I would really appreciate any advice or input! Thank you, Robert
Hello I have been flying a phantom 4 pro for my surveying company for about 2 years. I want to start flying a fixed wing drone now. Has anyone here built there own and can give me some advice? I am just now starting to dig into all the components that I will need and it is a bit overwhelming.
