I have a Spektrum DX6i that I purchased for my quad. At first everything seemed to be working fine. I was able to connect my ESC's to the RX and calibrate them. I did this for all four then proceeded…Continue
"I bought this motor about a year ago for a scratch built plane. It gave it a nice look worked well enough for what I wanted but the quality was a little lacking. The biggest issue were the small gauge wires that eventually just broke. They almost…"
"There is a company in the US working on a very large quad design which could be used e.g. to get people off of very high skyscrapers in case of fire. It looks somthing like an oil rig with four large enclosed rotors and a ramp with walking bridge…"
I have a Spektrum DX6i that I purchased for my quad. At first everything seemed to be working fine. I was able to connect my ESC's to the RX and calibrate them. I did this for all four then proceeded to connect my AMP/IMU and run the calibration tool. I followed the steps, adjusting my transmitter (some controls were reversed) and save the calibration.I then disconnected the quad and went into testing. After arming I was able to get some results both by moving the controls and by rolling and…See More

"Well, As i said it requires variable pitch. If one motor stops the opposite motor will only be used for balancing by changing pitch.
the two remaining motors must be able to lift the entire weight.
"yes there it is. That could use a face lift, something colorful like a parrot might be nice, and rubber guards surrounding the blades for a bit of safety perhaps. It might look more balanced if the pilot were in the middle and protected by a glass…"
"One large prop is more efficient than n smaller props; The advantages of a quad are the simplicity and efficiency of direct drive motors juxtaposed against the complexity of a cyclical etc. These advantages are presumably lost as the cost and size…"
