no,hexa with payload of 2,3 or more kg wont stay in air if lose one motor...teorethicly answer is yes,but when u lose motor brain is not capable of reacting so fast...Y6 frame and octa X8 frame could survive one motor loss,octa maybe with two...been there than that with normal hexa..my one also have trust enough for 9kg,but when u lose motor hexa make salto mortale on the side where is that motor...

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?

Well I have put my Naza up for sell so I can get the APM I am ready to do some waypoint flying

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..
