My JDrones standard-quad lost a light dispute with a tree in the backyard and broke some arms and motor mounts falling a short distance to the ground.
I want to rebuild the Arducopter as a hexacopter and have decided on the 3DR frame. I even have an APM2 lying around so I guess this will be a complete rebuild.
I have some questions for which I had little success in finding answers
Instead of starting several threads, let's try this:
1- I am more interested in gust stability than maximum lifting capacity, should I go for the 850 kv with 10" props or would the 880 with 10" props maybe give a good compromise ... or...??
2- Am I right that the optical flow sensor is not implemented in the SW yet? Will this be soon so I maybe should order one along with the frame + motors kit?
3- The arms of the 3DR. Are they stronger/tougher than the thin walled JDrones arms? Can I find CF arms or another tough alternative?
4- What are the by far best and most durable props and where to get them?
5- Time until 3DR kits back in stock in the US store?
