Hi everyone :)Althought it seems to me it's the first question that comes in mind when building a multirotor, there's not really much interest in determining which is the best design (deppending on…Continue
"Yeah totally understand, Honestly was just doing some reading and saw this, thought you had a great idea/request and wanted to expand to see if there was any interest. I didn't notice at the time how old the thread was!
Thanks for the response,…"
"@ Neil: Your innitiative is great, and I think it shoudl be done.
But the point about this thread (which is already some years old) was to ask the differences betwen the most common multi-copter configurations. Which is the most stable, which has…"

Seems like we need to make a common nomenclature.
Example of top level classes with each having sub classes.

"Just found this page with lots of layouts.
But althought it's a wiki-like page, there's no extra info (at least when i click on them) about each.
Guess I'll stick in the end with a radial hexarotor, it's somewhere between quad…"
"You've forgotten the best one, the V like the Falcon 8 from Astec
I'm not sure if you mean this one
Yes, you are right. Maybe someone is looking for the diferences between radial and lineal airframe desings. I'll add this one to the…"
"Ok here is some real data from a Tricopter and Quad just as they get flying (there will be some ground effect help as I couldn't lift off and clear the ground:
Ready to fly weight 825g
Lift off power 135W (at 10.1A from 3S battery)
I'm studying a grade in industrial electronics and have been since a child interested in UAVs (mostrly because of their appearance in video games at the beggining) and for the past years I've been playing with the idea of building my own quadcopter juts for fun, and afterwards, making it completely ground sensoring/computing independent.
