I'm pretty new to this whole multicopter thing and have been flying a quad for a couple months and just assembled a hex rotor copter. (sacrificing the quad)
Everything looks good so far getting about 8-9 minutes of flight time on a 3s 4500ma battery and the frame can take up to 4, but I assume Ill hit a wall of diminishing returns sooner rather than later.
Hex frame from Hobbyking
APM 2.0 (2.8.1 firmware)
mediatek GPS with APM2
6x 1200 KB motors with 9.5 4.7 props (I know now that was not the best choice)
turnigy plush 25a ESC's
Spektrum 6 channel receiver with sat
900 Mhz 3dr Telemetry modules
Sonar (the big one I forget which)
I do have a few questions I have built up and failed to find (or understand) the answers.
Thanks for your thoughts everyone!
