Being slightly annoyed by recent posts that just show off but don't share information and trying to find an optimal long-endurance setup myself at the moment, I decided to create a multicopter setup list in my blog. Some of you might know my X8 setup list where I started to collect efficient X8 setups. This multicopter setup list is basically the same idea. Everybody who likes to share can email me his setup which I will then put to the list. The list will be sorted by endurance, long endurance first, and grouped by the type, e.g. tri, quad, hex, etc.
I hope, after a short while, we will have a comprehensive list which should be a help for newbies as well as for experienced hobbyists to determine an efficient setup.
The list is up at http://stefan.gofferje.net/projects/uav-projects/multicopter-setup-list (nothing in it yet, though).
If you'd like to share and your copter can go >20 minutes in flight or >30 minutes in hover, please email your setup to email@example.com. In this email, please provide all data which is shown in the list. If possible, please provide links to the components used. Please also tell, what you use the multicopter for (hobby, professional, SAR, etc.). You can also provide additional information, like a link to your DIY-Drones profile. Please also tell, if and what contact information you would like to see published with your setup.
Of course, I'm also open to suggestions regarding the structure of the list.
