Deciding which specific motors to use was a hard decision. Knowing roughly what I needed was easy. If you look around you quickly learn that there are really only two sizes of quadcopters out there. There are medium-sized quadcopters that dont carry a payload and are designed for 3D flying. These use electric motors of about 45 grams (1.6 oz) each. I already knew mine was not going to be one of these. Unlike an airplane if you have a motor failure in a quadcopter you are dead. There are no inexpensive top quality motors so I decided to spend what I needed to spend to get the quality I wanted. I need to explain why a low Kv (motor voltage constant) was so important for the motors. A speed control (ESC) is not infinitely variable. When you move the throttle stick the ESC might not be able to exactly match the amount of movement requested. Having low Kv motors effectively makes these incremental steps smaller. When the software of the flight controller needs to maintain the quadcopter level having this finer control makes its job easier. You then will have a smoother flying quad which is best for shooting video.
Have you ever had a chance to fly a quadcopter? If not you have no idea just how exciting it is to fly these machines with precision accuracy using a remote controller. However once you do attempt to fly one you will encounter many problems in the beginning. This is because this type of an aerial machine is extremely sophisticated and it requires a good number of trial-and-error attempts to master the skill of handling it perfectly. Whether you have already tried your luck on flying one or youve yet to take your first one in air this article will help you learn the basics of flying and refine your skills so that you can tremendously enjoy this pastime.
Examples of these UAVs include Global Hawk Mariner Hunter Predator and Fire Scout. These are large sophisticated flying machines with a satellite data link system cameras radar laser designators and weapons. Most of these are fully autonomous which means they are intelligent devices capable of decision making during their flight. They capture battle damage information in real time and convey it back to the soldiers on ground. They are able to provide continuous operations for up to 7 or 8 hours of staying in the air. There are six functional categories of UAVs and these machines are designed to achieve a particular objective. The purposes that they fulfill include target acquisition battlefield intelligence attack (also known as unmanned combat air vehicle) cargo and logistics research and development and commercial UAVs. UAVs are also classified according to their size and these are known as micro miniature midsize and large military-specific or combat.
If you are looking for that perfect Christmas present this year for boys (and girls!) of all ages then you really should look at one of the many different choices of quadcopters and drones that are available today! You really want that excitement and that sheer look of happiness when they open their presents Christmas morning and once they unwrap their new drone or copter... well you will not have to wonder if you have got it right. The smiles and wide eyes will tell you clearly enough! Quadcopters are still relatively new technology well at least when we are talking about as a commercially available toy. Sure they have been around for a little while now however up until recent times they have been very expensive and not nearly geared and built as much for fun as they are today. What this means is that a new quadcopter is not going to be under every single tree so there will be quite a lot of uniqueness and also envy from your childrens friends! It is probably also the very first time they have received such a toy and let me tell you a drone or quadcopter really is a toy like no other!
