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.
