Hello and thank you for allow me to share my experiences with you. I am selecting my components and it's my first quadcopter. After some research I have the following components:
Frame 330mm: (160g)
Motor 2212 1400kv (192g)
ESC 30Amp Readytosky (100g)
Flight Controller Naze 32 (10g)
Power distribution board Blusky with XT60 (10g)
Battery 11.1v 3s 30c(191g)
Flysky FSi6S with iA6B
After complete the same calculus in this tutorial...the flight time is 13 minutes and I think that is very short according with the frame and propellers size. Could you please tell me how can improve the flight time?, I don't know if I can use propellers 9040 or even is this will improve the drone.
I seems that for the frame (330mm) the max size for propellers is 8" and even in the site where I am buying the frame, they recommend 8". So my question is: Is there a way to know if I can change the propellers to 9" without crash the drone? In that case, 9050 is ok?, so it's suppose that I can use motors 2216 with 1000kv?
Rule of thumb weight:
1/4 frame and accessories,
1/4 motors and esc and propellers
1/4 payload (cam, gimbal, video tx,...)
