Custom Hexcopter Build

Alex MonteiroAlex Monteiro Club Members Posts: 4

Hello,

I've been thinking about building my first hexcopter drone and was wondering if i have selected the correct parts to assist with building it. I will need for it to be able to lift around 15lbs and have a flight time of 20 to 30 minutes. Primarily the intent is to pull 1000 m of fishing line out to sea. Something like what the following link. [url]http://www.aerokontiki.com/[/url] Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Not a chance of either duration nor lift capacity with that setup.

    Your best bet is to 'try out' configurations in a program called ecalc -

    Usually it is pretty accurate, but I still think 20mins and 10lbs is a long shot...
