Peter commented on Stefan Gofferje's blog post New huge multicopter motors from Hobby King
"Well. I tried to find the answer myself.
Consider 105 kv engine. 6S gives 22.2 V. There would be 2331 rpm at full power.
Suppose we have 26x5 2-blade propeller.

On Saturday I launched my hexacopter another time. Things went as usual, while I was at STABILIZE mode and ACRO. When I had switched to ALT_HOLD the hexa suddenly stopped and fell down like a rock. I switched back to ACRO quickly and tried to catch…

Peter commented on Christiaan van Vollenstee's blog post APM 2.5 Power Layout
"BatShare from Smart-Fly - the one for 29.95
Seems a bit overpriced for a bunch of wire, a LED, and some diodes. Well, may be, it could protect the second battery if the first caught internal short circuit, but I have never heard of the crash of that…"
