Hello,

I've been thinking about building my first hexcopter drone and was wondering if i have selected the correct parts to assist with building it. I will need for it to be able to lift around 15lbs and have a flight time of 20 to 30 minutes. Primarily the intent is to pull 1000 m of fishing line out to sea. Something like what the following link. http://www.aerokontiki.com/ Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldnt use a racing ESC...go with hobbywing x-pro...cant go wrong with those, very reliable and simple. also use lower KV like 580 sunnysky motors

I dont know anything about that FC...I would go with a Pixhawk 4 with Ardupilot...very proven.
