I'm about to take the plunge on a Mini Mugin 2.6m from FPVModel. I really prefer it to be electric, so I need some suggestions what to replace the motor with.
It comes with a DLE30 motor swinging a 19" prop. The factory (after my insistence that it should be electric) suggests:
Battery: 2W 6-8S
Motor: 6350 kv 380
I was thinking a HobbyKing Rotomax 1.4 which is rated 2.7 Watt and 228kv.
Any wisdom much appreciated.
Did my maiden!
Nice. its same size as 60" rc plane.
Great :-D How many cameras/sensors you can fit in it and how log is the flight with current power setup?
I've had 3 cameras onboard once, with just one I get just about 2 hours.
Three is more than enough. With 2 hours flight at 300m alt. may be can cover up to 600ha. area in one mission.
600ha is exactly right! That's what I can achieve at 100m at 80kph.
If at 100m alt. and your cameras is 20MP or high quality capability that's really impressive output can be achived (Orthophoto & DSM). If you can have a test with advance sensors like NRGB cameras (like satellite sensor) also lidar sensor would be very very good. At the moment I only use canon s100 cameras but looking forward to test other sensors in future when I have budget for it. :-D
