i want to build a arducopter, i came up with this motors and lipos.
But i am a noob and i dont know for sure if these parts are fit togehter.
Motors i coose them bigger becouse i maybe want to use a cam in the future :
So are they good ? and which props do i have to use for this set up.
The Radio is OK, 8 Channels with low price and a lot of possible 'hacks' to improve it
The motor seems very oversized, and the 3300 Lipo will be empty shortly after starting.
If you realy need so much power, I would suggest a 6600mAh Turnigy nano LIPO,
but be warned this quadro will have a lot power (600W per propeller), nothing for a beginner.
Those ESCs do not have a BEC(battery elimination circuit) -a voltage regulator to feed 5v to your Rx(receiver) and APM. So you will need to add a BEC to your list.
Those motors have a Kv rating of 1100, which means the motor will turn 1100 RPM for every volt that is given to it, so 14.8v =16,280 RPM. I think that is a bit fast for large 12"+ props, You might want to look for a slower Kv motor. Big props spinning slowly are going to be quieter with good lift and stability, that's nice for hauling a camera system, and more pleasant to be around also.
You definitely want more amp/hours in your battery pack with such a large power system, like the others have said.
Get extra motors, my luck has been 1 of 4 have quality issuse. I would also use 2 of the 3000 mha lipos together. 11 x 4.7 prop should work nicely. The Turnigy 9x is an awesome radio just don't plug the battery in the wrong way or it will destroy if self.
thanks for the infos i think now i was going to big for my first model.
So what motors do you prefer for a middle size copter?
maybe this one it has 40A
The C4240 has still over 500 W Power, in my opinion this is not a real MID size motor for a quad.
A friend of mine is using the TR 35-30C 1100kv (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=...) with the Hobbyking SS25/30A, and I think this copter hat still to much power for learning to fly. One small wrong move at the radio, will push the copter in the next available tree.
(You must know, trees are bad, they hate copters)
