Hello to the community,
I'm a beginner in this area. To safe money but more important to learn and understand what is happening while being flexible, I decided not to buy a commercial rtf-kit. So after a bit (or more...) of research I came across the DJI Flame Wheel F450 which seems to be a nice and affordable frame. But instead of taking a DJI flight controller I wanted to try the Ardupilot. My problem now is the power distribution and wiring. My setup is:
Frame DJI Flamewheel F450
Motors 4 x DJI Motor 2212/920rpm/V
ESC 4 x 30A / OPTO
Battery 3S 11,1V 5000mAh
Controller Ardupilot Mega 2.5
Receiver The one with Futaba T8J
I read that for the OPTO motor ESCs I don't need several BECs. But for the APM I do. The frame itself got a power distribution (board) built-in, so...
Which BEC do I have to take and
How do I wire all that stuff together?
When do I decide for a 3S or 4S battery?
Are there some graphics which I haven't found yet? Or any beginner tutorials about all this energy distribution topic?
I would be very thankful for any help! Bye, André
