I have a hex in the build, as there is a certain amount of redundancy in having 6 motors v 4. Also a bit of extra grunt may help to get the thing out of trouble if needs be, oh and I hope will be slightly more stable perhaps (although as I say, I have no general complaints with my quad). Other hex users hereabouts can give you more info. I';ll let you know how mine works out!Andy
Quote from: Hands0n on Wednesday,September 25, 2013, 10:31:42 My thoughts are that a Quad is quite suitable for purpose if it is well set up and has a capable flight controller. Some FCs, like the Naza or a well set up APM, would be ideal for camera work purposes. A Hex will give greater lifting power, but if it is not needed then that alone is not sufficient reason to spend more. But then in terms of safety a Hex can survive single motor failure if [again] equipped with a suitable FC that is capable of coping with such. A Hex does introduce flight time considerations - two extra motors to power. That in turn may raise the cost of ownership by having to equip with batteries of a higher cell count (4S and above) and capacity (ie 400mAh+) that are more expensive at the outset.
