A successful build of my heavy lift quad copter.
Thanks especially to William Cox and Steve Keep - it is now flying a lot smoother.

- 10S 8Ah (2 * 5S)
- 28" Carbon fibre props
- Aluminium frame
- Weight (no payload or batteries) 4.1kg
- Water resistant
- Lunch box :-)
- 5 minute test flight at 12kg
- 24 minute down to 3.57 volts per cell
- Loiter stability - everything stable except loiter
- Needs a larger box
Attached is my parameters. I read a lot about people not sharing parameters. And these need a lot of work, but here they are... shared...
In the next 4 weeks it should be flying down in Antarctica doing some radio tests to wave buoys and photos of sea ice floes.
