Quote from: teslahed on Thursday,August 09, 2012, 15:14:21 Looks very nice. I'm using the same motors as you on a (probably slightly heavier) self made PVC frame. I have found they work very well but that the E-Clips / Circlips that keep them together are spindly and a bit rubbish. You'll probably have to replace them sooner or later when you find your motors start making rattling noises - after a couple of mine did i replaced all of them.http://www.multi-rotor.co.uk/index.php/topic,223.15.htmlAlso I've found the motors work very well with 9 inch props if you decide you want a bit more power, these ones are working well for me at the moment (for some reason 9 inch props are harder to find than 8 or 10);http://flyduino.net/9x47-Propeller-Set-Green-4-pcs-2-CW-and-2-CCWbut if your frame is lighter than my PVC frame you may be fine with 8 inch props.

QuoteIv'e used the hk450 landing skids on mine from giant shark but they don't seem to stock the ones I had now, the hk500 skids might be better a bit bigger
QuoteI'm actually using 10" props at the moment but I have a few sets of 8" which I need to balance before I try them. It works well on the 10" but I haven't tried a watt meter yet to measure the current draw (I'll check today with both sizes and report back).
Quote from: pheasant_plucker on Friday,August 10, 2012, 09:33:04 A quick check with the 10" props using a watt meter gives 305watt average with 26 amp average current draw at full throttle with the quad held down. I would imagine this will drop considerably in flight as the props will not have to work as hard. So 26/4 = 6.5amps per 18amp ESC so well within the comfort zone.
QuoteMy Turnigy 3s 2200 25c packs are well up to the job too. (good job as I have six of them)I have found that I get 10minutes comfortably hovering around with gentle manoeuvres just to get the feel and look of it. I have just done 10minutes and checked the pack, each cell is showing 3.72v.I have tried to use one of those LiPo alarms but it keeps triggering intermittently in use. so I think I'll stick to the timer and monitoing the cells for now.
