"Hey Tommy, I am interested in your copter,What kind of motor/props combo did you use?"

"Nice work Yannis !!!! Hey Tommy, I am also interested in your sub 250gram achieving over 1 hour flight time :-)"

"Tommy, care to post some specs on your sub-250g endurance copter? Link perhaps? Thanks."

"That's impressive! I imagine it is 1S since it is a single 18650? What kind of motor/props combo did you use?"

"Nice work :) I have built myself a sub-250g with flight time 1hour 12min using 18650 :)"

"That'd be great indeed! are you aware of brushed motor models with high enough kV that can run on 1S? "

"if you can change motors to make it works at 1S you can try to carry one single 18650, probably you can get an hour with a one Panasonic NCR18650B!"

Lightweight 3D Printed Endurance Quadcopter

I'd like to share a project I've been busy with for the past months. It's a lightweight, small size quadcopter built for long flight time. The AUW of the quad is 85g, and uses geared propulsion with micro DC motors. Controlled by a F4 brushed flight controller, and using a 300mah 2S lipo battery. With this configuration it achieves around 10 mins flight time, which could be further increased with a redesign of some structural parts focusing further on weight-reduction. The quadcopter is quite…See More

"@Felixrising yes indeed, switching to smaller ESCs is in my todo list, however these I had lying around and they're pretty solid as well in terms of performance. Thanks for the link to the FC/ESC combo. Looks really neat – I got to start…"

"With AIO flight controllers like the 20x20mm 6.5g XJB F425, F410 and F310 getting around, I can't help but wonder why ArduPilot/APM Copter doesn't have support for such neat little boards. These things have SPI bus capable of…"

"You could also switch to some smaller Mini ESCs or even a single mini 4-in-1.. would blent into the arms a lot more than those T-Motor Airs."

Building a sub-500 gram (< 1.1 pound) quadcopter

I wanted to build a lightweight quadcopter frame for some time, and I've eventually found time to do it. Hereby I summarize some aspects of the build that allowed me to save weight.Note that this is a summary of the complete post in my blog.I’ve chosen to build a very simple X frame for this build. The frame is made out of two square unidirectional carbon fiber tubes of 8mm x 8mm outer…See More
