Another ArduCopter Hexa proto. Final frame is starting to form properly.
This version has landing gears that are meant for 600-700 Series helicopters. Nice looking but a bit heavier LG's. Having specially made mount plates for this LG

well, not detect anything,
actually you have to change nothing - the copter is naturally tilting to the missing motor side, and naturally the opposite side motor should go lower throttle.
but it just dont happen ENOUGH, probably a MINIMUM throttle limit in the code.
but if the code allows the opposite motor to go zero throttle, it should work !
would you please advise what PIDs are you running the hexa ?
Hi Jani, good work man, looking forward to seeing the camera mounts. Any ETA on the OSD breakout board yet? I really don't wan't to buy a Remzibi if I don't have to (weight), but I lost my quad the other day in someones front yard after the wind took it away :(
Got it back, as I had my web address and "reward offered" printed on it. Would love to have lat/long co-ords in case it happens again
...most curiously, I just did a thrust test on my jDrones purple 850Kv motors to compare the factory 10x4.5's versus the 12x4.5's. I've been advised I should only use the 12" with the 880Kv motor, and 10" with the 850kv.
A-2830-12 850Kv "purple" standard Arducopter motor at full throttle:
-600 grams with the 10"
- 945 grams with the 12"
Can someone explain why I wouldn't want the max thrust from my motors, and therefore use the 12" props?
Owen: I think the answer is "battery life". Did you measure the current draw difference between the two?
Hi Chris, no I didn't, I've got a current sensor onboard, so I'll see if I can get that to talk to me, thanks
