I would like to build an octocopter, with an X8 config. Would need some help with choosing the relevant (1) motors and (2) props (3) ESCs and also the (4) batteries. I would be using an APM2.5 board.
However, I do have some restrains / requirements.
- The X8 octocopter AUW will be approximately 35 lbs (16kg).
- The prop can only have a maximum diameter of 9 inches.
I am worried that with such specs, the quad may not be stable or even maybe take off.
I was wondering if having 4 or 6 blades to each prop instead of 2 would solve the problem (if the basic 2 props can’t do the job). But having 4 or 6 blades, would the motors be able to take the stress?
Anyone have any recommendations on how many kv motor to use and prop size?
