Impatience is getting the best of me, I have a Hexacopter (flying in the + formation)
I have 5 booms 5 motors and 5 props and its going to be a while before I can get the sixth so my question is is APM capable of flying stable with just 5 motors? and if so which would be the best motor for it not to have working (i.e. front back left right etc.)
I know it wont function at 100% but I just need to know if it will be stable enough to fly around my back yard.
My take would be why risk it.......
Can you not make a quad while you wait?
I think torque rotation is also an issue with odd numbers of motors.
I flew into the ground from 50 feet with 5 rotors, which ended badly (needless to say). Hexas don't like 16% of the props missing. My prop flew off, so based on my limited experience, I would expect the worst. If you do fly, I would love to see the video :)
