I'm waiting for my Skywalker X8 Black to arrive but in the meantime I have started thinking about a suitable build for mapping large areas. Jobs would be between 2 to 10 square kilometres. Therefore long flight time are required.
The only 3 sure things of the build are.
1. Skywalker Black X8 airframe.
2. Sony A6000 camera. (460g)
3. Pixhawk 2 Cube, Flight Controller.
4. Twin battery setup. (For some redundancy)
Would anyone know of a suitable combination to allow for flight times of at least 90min for;
c. 2 x Battery Setup
Thanks guys, this information would be much appreciated
I am building one myself, however, at this point don't know what kind of flight time I will get out of it.
I am planning to use either two x 5000 maH batteries or one 10,000 mAh battery.
I still need to do all the calculations yet to figure out final payload and the motor I will use. I am planning to use a Scorpion motor.
:) if you are new to building planes from scratch, this is one is a monster plane to build. Buddy take your time.
Its a bit** to launch this plane also.
