Do you like my part list for my new quad copter?

Hello pilots! I am new and want to build my first quad copter, but I am not sure about the ESC, Motor, Propeller on my part list. I also do not know which battery pack and battery charger I need to fly between 10 and 20 minutes with my setup. Please give me advise about the parts, if you think there is a better alternative or if I forgot a part. Thank you!!

  • Hi Shahin,

    How did this assembly go? Faced any issues. Is there any significant change in the list you suggested?

    I am asking because I am interested to build a similar frame.

    Thanks

    • Hi Mohamed,

      There was one drawback. The multiwii pro 2.0 was a disaster and GPS did not work no matter what I did. I bought the DJI Naza V2 with all the other parts the same as the list above and it was perfect! It flies perfect and I LOVE it. Two video's of the new system flying:

      and

      Good luck and have fun :D

      This is the new parts list:

      HobbyKing™ Lipoly Low Voltage Alarm (2s~4s)

      Don't use this low voltage alarm from HK. It caused my quadcopter to crash because the battery alarm did not turn on when the battery was almost empty. 

      I bought one from somewhere else where you could setup your own minimum voltage.

      International (Registered) Air Mail 0 - 100g No Lipo 1,00 $3,99

      • Thanks for the reply. How much was the flight time when fully loaded, and fully charged?

        • I have another question. Have you tried to fly a good smaller quadrotor size?

          • Almost 15 minutes. It depends on how fast I fly, the faster I fly, the faster the battery is drained. I've not flown any smaller quadcopters yet.  

  • So guys, I finished making my list, I think;

  • I wouls also take larger props on slower motors.. had excellent flight time with Axi 2217 860 kV motors and 11x4.5 APC props, or 12x4.5 black plastic EPP ones. Okay those are expensive motors but others in the 850kV and 70g range will do also.
    Regards, Soren
  • Your propellers are a bit small. Why not go for 10x4.7 or even 11x4.7. Larger props require lower engine rpm and result in less battery.

  • Alot like my build , U used the Q-brain ESC 25 amp, and the HK power module from hobby king, running a 4500 Mah zippy compact battery. Also buy a couple of the frames when u crash you will need spare parts and there so cheap. I made the mistake of not ordering 2 then I had to wait for my new frame to arrive..... I'm using this motor "Motor prop combo"  with props and is close to the stock DJI flamewheel 450 motor and prop combo seems like its working ok for me no problems yet and a fair price.
