The way forward?


Recommended Posts

By the time you got enough together you would need batteries the size of a breeze block to run them for any amount of time. The weight is not so much the issue, it's the cost and maintenance of them there LiPo's

I get that...

But 6 thrusters costing around 300 each...

And 1k work of batteries

And 1k worth of frame etc...

Still good value, and I wonder if the life span of the lipos costs more than petrol costs over their lifespan??

Just curious!! Or could it be the next project?

We just had to spend £1000 on Lipo's for the Spidi Cam.... they would run 6 of those motors for about 7 mins. They represent the size of a normal house brick all together!!.

I recon your looking more at £3k for the batteries and expect a 50% loss over 12-18 months depending on use.

That will give you 21 mins of flight when new and 10 after 18 months. :-(
