I'm getting my list together for a Hexa copter and need help figuring out which batteries to get and how many. I will be carrying a gopro2 and want to stay in the air as long as possible. I really have no clue, the 'get it' page links to this as an "inexpensive source": http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=...
Here is my order list thus far, do you see anything to watch out for? Do I need anything else to get off the ground (other than batteries)?
ArduCopter Hexa 3DR Frame + Motors Kit (880kv motors)
ArduPilot Mega 2.0 Fully Assembled System (w/o gps)
3DR GPS LEA-6
Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 2) (v2 Firmware) (USA Warehouse)
Thanks for the assistance!
Might want to get a bigger battery.. I'd recommend a 4S 5000mAh battery for a hexa.
I listed a few tested flight times with that battery here:
Awesome! Thanks for the info. Now I'm just waiting for the 11X47 props to come back in stock.
