Will It Fly?

Surely we're talking thrust vs. mass? So what's it weigh? A quick tot up of the parts shows we're running about 800g. At eCalc I try to get a calculation done but there's too much I don't know. I guess I'll take my experience with Rich's quad as all the evidence I need. What do you reckon mate? Same frame, motors and props as yours. How far off can it be?

That is all.


  1. Richard suggested boosting the ESC to 20A to allow a change of motors later. Good thinking.
