About Me:

I'm an energy consulting engineer working on building efficiency.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

"I think the 5.8 ghz seems to be the best option for range and lack of interference. I plan to use telemetry so the 900 mhz and 2.4 ghz frequencies are off limits. 
I had looked before on RangeVideo but missed the 5.8ghz tx/rx modules. They're pretty…"

I'm looking to get a battery (or batteries) for a hexacopter. As the name implies it has 6 of these motors. So if I've calculated things out properly, and I'm just learning about this stuff now, the maximum current draw should be 120A plus whatever…

I'm very new the RC world and I'm trying to pick a radio system for a hexacopter. The three wireless components I'll probably have are the RC controls, XBee telemetry, and a video downlink.I'm thinking RC at 2.4Ghz, XBee at 900Mhz, and Video at some…
