I have seen several posts here and on rcgroups asking for the same help but have yet to see any simple specific guidance for the calculation or formulas that arrive at a solid Motor/Propeller/Battery combination for QuadRotor platforms. Of course the weight, maneuverability and flight times or battery capacities are going to be different for each but there has to be an easier solution than web pages with forty inputs that are unknown to the average person.
Does anyone have a link or some easy formulas for calculating:
- Motor specifications
- Propeller specifications
- Battery capacity
- Appropriate ESC specs for Motors/Batteries
With inputs of:
- Total weight: 35 lbs (Airframe, 4 Motors, 4 ESCs, 4 Batteries, APM & Electronics, Misc)
- Desired flight time: ~ 30 minutes
I would imagine that each Motor/ESC should run on its own battery. Most motor retailers recommend ESCs for the specific motor, but are there any tips to take into consideration for an Aeroquad?
Thanks in advance for any help and I'm sure that this info will serve many more than just myself.
