Wow...that's a good payload. Perhaps flight time is measured in seconds. I have a friend that's thinking about shooting some video. Asking me what he would need, quad, hex or octo. My experience is a GoPro. Perhaps 10 minutes of flight time.

I have a hex that will theoretically lift 9Kg, it's just a question of thrust, and of course, battery consumption.

I think the question is:"would an hexacopter still fly with a 2,5kg payload if an motor was lost?"

Would a hex copter carry a 2.5 KG payload such as a camera comfortably?

Does anybody know if the ArduCopter Quad-C Frame parts are available in CAD format anywhere?

Comment by Shyam Balasubramanian on January 19, 2013 at 1:38pm

Hi @Reto,

You want to achieve this using Servos directly? If I understand correctly, you want to be able to move the servo head to click photographs? What is DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL, can you explain that more precisely?

Also, I think better would be to start a new forum as this looks quite jampacked.

Regards..

Comment by Reto on January 19, 2013 at 1:13pm

Thx Shyam. I'd read your post recently but it doesn't help in my case.
I'd like to mechanically time lapse trigger my RX100 cam through a servo (no IR or usb trigger). I hoped maybe the DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL could be linked with  some time lapse counter.
