Farooq Niaz replied to dudz's discussion Ecalc confusion. some small help needed please
"1.Ecalc just broadly gives correct results. True results can only obtained using test bench
2. just try to increase the elevator gain more than aileron gain"

"I have been using APM and WKM for a year now. I had also tried to do my own development in the code as well. I had also gone through the hardware details of these two. In my observatoin
1. APM boards use cheap, uncalibrated sensors, mounted on a no…"

"Hi
Just looking at one question which I generally see is skipped.
"When is DMP coming. What is the performance difference. Will it make arducopter quad fly as good as a DJI or Mk""

"By the way what is the benefit of having more poles in such a motor"

Farooq Niaz commented on Farooq Niaz's blog post Ideal Motors for Quadcopters:
"Jani: I think 80$ should not be an issue but quality is the prime reason.

Johann: I think most people fly quads around 1.5Kg flying weight. So If we take this as reference what is your suggestion"

Farooq Niaz posted a blog post
While searching for the Ideal motors I figured out few things which will give smooth flight and long battery life1. Should be low Kv2. Should have enough torque. May be the motors with more outer dia are better3. Should have very low weight4. Should…

"I had been following this thread and all previous anxiously waiting for some good news as my two APM-1 boards with oil pan and shields are waiting for a solid performance. During this time I had tried Wookong M so shifted everything on DJI.

Despite…"

"I think two layered PCB with so many connectors may be a serious reason of noise and abnormal behaviors. Not necessarily every PCB with high speed need Signal integrity tests. I have seen very low frequency signals at times generating havoc in…"

Farooq Niaz replied to Jason Short's discussion Arducopter 2.1 release
"Can anyone tell what is the difference when I use small dia prop vs larger dia props while climbing for maximum altitude. Motors and current consumption is not an issue."

Farooq Niaz replied to Farooq Niaz's discussion What is required for more flying time?
"I think I am stuck with the equation of low Kv but large props.

Does someone tell what is the motor, Kv and prop size for MD4-200"

After doing so many calculation I am stuck athow can I increase the flying time and without compromising the maximum heightSteps considered1. Reducing weight2. Low Kv or high Kv motors3. smaller prop or bigger prop4. prop pitch5. Hgher capacity…

Farooq Niaz replied to Farooq Niaz's discussion Motors help required
"Thanks Jani
I shall be more interested if I could buy some sample from you immediately as I required these motors ASAP

Checked the Xcalc for multicopters. According to this there is no way with the existing motors I can go beyond 20 minutes with…"
