As I subscribe to this guy';s ';tube'; feed, I thought it might be of interest to others:

Kind of what I suspected, but as I never get around to doing these ';Sciency'; experiments for myself, it';s nice that others can.

Thanks for posting this up. It';s a question I';ve been asking a lot lately and although I asumed this would be the answer it';s nice to see the proof behind it.  :smiley:

What an excellent, clear, concise explanation and demonstration of the topic.  Motor and prop choice can be bewildering.  Tutorials like this really help clarify.

Aircraft: miniMax Hex, DJI 550 (clone) TBS Disco, 450 Firefly, 250 Pro, ZMR250, Hubsan X4, Bixler 2


IME, different motors have different efficiencies based purely on their construction. If he used NTM';s for the larger props, I suspect the differences wouldn';t be so obvious.
