I'm planning to build an octo with Pixhawk.

Motor: Tarot 5008/340Kv

ESC: Xrotor 50A

Battery: 6S 16000mah ~ 22000mah

I bought this:
http://www.goodluckbuy.com/apm2-5-2-apm2-6-pixhawk-power-module-v1-...  This have a max current of 90A.

I also looked at this:

But this is still max 120A all together. Any one have a suggestion for 300A or similar ?

OR any schematic that I could get print PCB myself ?

Sparkfun can have max 180A

Vulcan 250A is just a power distribution board, doesn't sense voltage and current through pixhawk.

I'm looking for 300A + current module

Musthafa, I understand that the Sparkfun is "only" rated to 180A, which is better than 90A but still falls short of being 300A. However, are you sure that you will pull more that 180A all the time? What is your AUW? Also, YOU posted a link to a power distribution board and that's why I mention the Vulcan PDB...

Anyhow, good luck finding what you are looking for.

AUW is expected to be in between 6-8kg including gimbal.

Power distribution board which I posted had pixhawk module of 120A.

I am not sitting in front of my computer right now, otherwise I would check with ecal.ch and see what the numbers are. I need exact motor and esc, which you posted, and prop size. Unless you checked yourself already. Anyhow, do you know that you don't need the power module when using the Pixhawk!? You can power it through a bec. Just saying. Of course you would lose telemetry. BUT, you can always use an external telemetry module like the FrSky stuff...
