Help a newbie... Am I missing anything?

So... been interested in this stuff for awhile, and finally decided to jump in. Think I did my homework, but looking to run a few things by you all.



Here is what I'm looking to build.



387000044-0 - HobbyKing 650X6 Folding HexaCopter Frame..

9192000124-0 - Afro ESC 30Amp Multi-rotor Motor Speed C..

9392000008 - Turnigy Multistar 4225-610Kv 16Pole Mult..

017000067 - HobbyKing Slowfly Propeller 12x4.5 Red (..

9171000446-0 - Hobbyking KK2.1.5 Multi-rotor LCD Flight..

912700012-0 - Multistar High Capacity 4S 16000mAh Mult..

9070000055-0 - Quanum 6 Axis Multi-Rotor Aircraft Navig..

TX-9X-M1 - Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8..

740000003-0 - Foxeer Legend 1 1080P 60fps Action Camer..



Weight looks to be about 3000g with the camera.



So... My questions..



1) Battery too heavy? From what I understand, a 16000 10C should be able to handle the 22x6A motor draw.

2) Am I missing anything serious? Decent motors for the prop? Generate enough thrust? (I couldn't find much... but I think I can get 900g per motor - this sound right?)Akshue2016-06-18 10:00:38

    Hi



    A few comments on you choice



    Yes that is a very heavy battery, so you will need to know how much trust your chosen Motor & Prop combination will produce to ensure you get enough lift, although 12 motors spinning 12" props should be enough.



    You will also need to workout the Capacity v The expected run times as a lighter lower capacity pack might end up giving a better performance because of the significant weight saving.



    One othe r comment is given the size of this model I would suggest a more capable flight controller, the Pixhawk or 10 DOF CC3D type controller would be much better than the KK2 which is by todays standards a very basic controller.

    This look correct?

    Figures look fine. Lovely battery for a hexacopter.



    But a KK controller??? Damn! NO!!!



    Just as Paul says. Go for a PixHawk.

    Either of those choices sold here?   Pixhawk looks much more involved than a KK, and I'm having trouble searching for CC3D

    CC3D (look for the CC3D Revolution), and Pixhawk are better found elsewhere.



    You will regret buying a KK for your build. Guaranteed.

    Found that, yes... Was hoping for all-in-one, but went with *******.

    Ended up getting



    Crazepony Upgrade FC TauLabs Sparky2.0 10DOF CC3D REVO Flight Controller



    Looks like I may be able to add some GPS stuff in the future should I want it, and I did like the USB programming vs the OSD programming....
