Hello everyone, i have no experience at all in this field, apart from a few days of reading and a lot of years dreaming.
My long term project is to make a X8 fly with the longest possible range (i heard of some configurations that can reach 100km). I will later worry about using an APM with telemetry via 3G connectivity, streaming video from the plane in real time, and all of that kind of cool stuff.
To start with my project, i would like to hear your opinion on what i should order to get started. What kind of motor, prop and battery would provide the best range possible?
Some blogpost pointed me towards a Turnigy SK3 - 3542-1250kv with a 11x6 prop and 4x4S@5Ah batteries.
From what i understand, the goal is to have a config with the lowest possible current during cruise speed, and to have on the other side enough for the liftoff.
Do you have any suggestions?
