Hi I have quite big octocopter with flat frame cinenestar type with 16" propellers and t-motor u7 420kv motors. It has 120 cm frame size. I would like to change the propellers in it to 18" to have…Continue

Moving from Mikrokopter to Pixhawk 2.1

Hi I am starting to build new octocopter based on Pixhawk 2.1. I have few years of experience in building and flying custom Mikrokopter copters. All advices are welcome ! What are the biggest differences between this autopilots ? I am sure that same users of this forum changed their autopilot for Pixhawk 2.1 from Mikrokopter ? I am reading the ardupilot copter docs but that can be not enough. First build will be flat octocopter for testing with MK 3638 motors, Flame 80a ESCs, 12" propellers…See More

"Tested 7 years ago at the beginning of multirotor adventure, as I wrote : The overlapping will cause no problems but I doubt it will increase efficiency ."

"There was a research paper floating around on the net that showed with a ~10% overlap, there was a ~5% increase in efficiency. Don't hold me to those numbers. It was something like that. Unfortunately I don't have the link anymore."

"Why not do some testing with the original prop in the original configuration versus the "up/down" configuration, everything else being the same? Not only will you have your answer, but come back here and let us know what the results were.…"

"Guess that 4 pair of good 18" propellers as T-motor are not cheap. Good Luck for your project !"

"Yes but that's bigger weight and much bigger price for batteries I think ??? Are they better than tattu ? Do you have any link ? Can I have 12000 or 15000 batt in the same weight as tattu lipo ?"

"In that case I suggest to switch to a different type of batteries , Sony Lion high C discharge , so you can go up to 20 minutes. "

"I have done some maths , not with E-calc,  you should hover at 91,6A with a 6S setup . Are you using standard 20-30C Lipo batteries  with 3000 g of weight ?"

"Octocopter weights about 13kg with camera and gimbal and batteries (2x10 000). It fly around 13 minutes."

"The overlapping will cause no problems but I doubt it will increase efficiency . You can change by software the motor direction if you have black MK Esc or last version MK Esc,  if you have the red MK Esc it is not possible and you have to…"

"Thanks for answers. I did calculation in ecalc.ch and checked the documentation of the motors so I know that on such configuration on flat octo if I will change propellers from 16: to 18" I will get extra 1 minute of flight time. My problem are…"

Luc Maximilien replied to Miron Bogacki's discussion Bigger propellers on octocopter at the same size of frame
"Going from  16" to 18"  depends also if you are actually with 4S or 6S batteries . Finally you will get a 10% more thrust if T-Motor chart correspond to reality but the propeller weights more so it will less than 10% and has more…"
