    Winter Sunset in the Moutains before a storm comes

    that was an absolute lucky shot, first because of high wind speed weather forecast I was thinking the day will be no flying but shortly before the day end I watched some nearby webcams and I a voice in my head said lets to it :) I should hear on my inner voice more often...

    Help! Anyone know of a good 12-15 kilowatt brushless inrunner motor?

    Hello, Does anyone know of a good brushless inrunner capable of a continuous power rating of about 12-15 kW that has reasonable weight (under 5kg)? For a bit of context, I am building a drone and I need two motors like this to connect to the back of two gas turbines in the drone to output a...

    Help! I need your help!

    Hi! I’m from Las Vegas and I’m 15. Recently, I just got into quads and planes. However, being a teen, it’s hard to be able to keep these things in the air as I’m always wrecking parts and such. Recently, I just wrecked my fpv quad through a faulty micro receiver. It lost connection, which...

    Endurance Quadcopter Build-Off

    This is going to be a fun one. For once, I am not dealing with maximizing acrobatic performance, speed, or camera stability. No, this time it is just that: time. Flight time specifically. My friend challenged me to a build off. Who can get the longest flight time from two 18650b batteries...

    Help! Motor 2 spinning faster than the rest on KK 2.1.5 board

    Hey guys, I am building my first quadcopter using the KK 2.1.5 board (the frame is similar to DJI F450, using 1000Kv motors, 2200Mah 11.1v battery), but the motor connected to the 2nd ESC slot on the KK board is spinning faster than the rest. i.e with like around 5%-10% throttle I am able to...

    Motors Spinning at Different Speeds

    I've been working on my new 250mm quad, and when I use the manual motor control in Betaflight, they all spin at the same speed. However, when I go to use the transmitter, they all spin at different speeds. I've tried calibrating the escs and that didn't work. I've included a screenshot of the...

    Quadcopter Motors Not Spinning

    I just finished building my first 250mm quad and I armed the motors, but they won't spin. I've tried calibrating the escs, but that didn't work. When I calibrate them through Baseflight, they beep at the top of the slider, beep at the bottom, then continue beeping consistently. I tried using...

    450 Quadcopter Frame From PolyFlex Pressure Pipe

    This $4 frame has no screws, is very rigid and weighs less than the flamewheel. The ESCs are inside the 1" arms/tubes which is more durable and reduces the drag. Illuminati flight controller with on screen display, Xiaomi Yi camera, 600 mw video transmitter, 2212/920 KV motors, SimonK 30 amp...

    high voltage brushless motors

    I was wondering what it takes to change the voltage from a normal 6s capable motor to a higher voltage one, something like 10s. This is for a mini quad (250) experiment. I don&#8217;t think that it&#8217;s the size of the wire, because that is regulated by current. But, I may be wrong. Any ideas?

    Been flying micro quads for a while. Ready for an upgrade.....

    Hey all. So I'm decently experienced with multirotors. I've gone through at least 4-5 micro quads in the past year zipping them through my house, and I've logged a decent amount of time on simulators. I have a 250 size carbon fiber "racing" quad that I bought a few years ago, but I was...

    A Little Problem with my First 250 Quad Build...

    Sometime last winter I decided to attempt to build a 250 racing quad. I'm a high school student, so I don't have much time to devote to this project, which is part of the reason it has taken me so long to get to the point I'm at now. So far I've encountered some pretty frustrating difficulties...

    Propellers spin then the drone cuts out

    Hi All, I'm a noob to quadcopters/drones and dont really know where to start when problem solving. I have a Syma X5SW-1 and have managed just one flight. The day after this success i powered it up again pushed the accelerater forward to find the propellers would spin for about a second then the...

    Extra motors, multiengine projects

    The motors on my pumpkincopter are the 2212 1000kv orange cheapies, for now. As I look to upgrade the motors on my XJ470 in the future, the more powerful Multistar cans from that will probably end up on my electrohub (again, pumpkincopter) quad. I really don't want to have all those motors...
