I am thinking of a project in which I would have to use an hexacopter to "watch" other moving things. It would have a camera attached to it's bottom. Somehow, it would have to be "locked" above the moving parts to film it and pass the image to the computer. There would be fixed points which would be used as references by the tracking software. The problem is that I don't know whether there is a way to keep a hexacopter stable enough in order not to have this area out of sight.
These are my questions:
- How does altitude affect the hexacopter's stability?
- How much wind is necessary to take my hexacopter totally out of position?
- What should I concern about when building an hexacopter in order to make it as stable as possible?
- What about another multirotor? Is and "octacopter" much more stable than an hexa?
Any other tips and helpful informations are welcome.
