Built 2000 mm drone diameter, need Frame size recommendation

Recommended Posts

New to Forum and I am no engineer.  I need someone with an engineering background to provide a calculation and/or considerations relating frame size and drone diameter.  I have built an 8 foot octocopter based circular body and need to understand the relationship between the frame distance (center of circle of motors) and the exterior diameter and problems if I use the minimum frame size.   In other words, a way to calculate/determine the impact from a change of stability in the angle of attack when the motor thrust is within a relatively narrow centerline relative to the diameter of the body.   In other, other words, though obviously if the motors are on the edge of the 8 foot perimeter it will be more stable at the cost of frame weight, I wish to calculate the minimum motor frame size I can use while maintaining stability.

Note: Edited so that it now looks like a monkey didn't write it.

New to Forum and I am no engineer. I need someone with an engineering background to provide a calculation and/or considerations relating the inner motor frame size to the 8 foot diameter shell I built to hold the frame. In other words, though obviously if the motors are close to the edge of the 8 foot perimeter it will be more stable (with a cost of in motor frame weight, I wish to calculate the minimum motor frame size I can use while maintaining stability to minimize the weight.
