    Yep- what the man said up there.

    I am spinning 12 and 11's on 3508-29-380kv's with 6S- it has to lift a few things. Like 2 different gimbals- one a gopro and the other a canon sx260 for mapping (I am building that gimbal now for it)

    I think the 500 suggested up there is good- but so many variables play into the build and I cannot stress enough how much front end math and planning I did on my previous craft that ran these motors to get what I wanted.

    Basically- check weight specs and make a list- the first thing is to try and establish what the estimated real world AUW will be. It isn't as hard as it is tedious- all parts usually have that listed in the specs. Add everything up- get that number and then see what demands are and match motor/esc/battery to those expectations. That is how I approach large multirotor building- begin with weight and use/needs.
    dirty side down.....o~^o

    I totally agree.

    Thanks MAYMIDROIX I will be carrying front and rear GoPro with FatShark, figured i'd go with the 4s. Also a more technical question, my motor wires always run short on these long armed frames, the KV 500's I am planning to order are no exception. Common sense tells me to extend with bullet connectors from the motors to the ESC instead of from the ESC to the PDB. What gauge wire would you guys use? I can't remember.
    Thanks
    Liam

    Hi Guys, I try my best to keep up with all the tasks that are required to keep everything going plus I work full time as engineer in a car company. Sorry for my delays but I never respond later than 2 bussiness days. I hope you guys can understand.

    I recommend removing the bullet connectors as this will remove a possible point of failure. You should use the same wire size of the esc so I'm not sure what will be wire size of the esc that you'll be using but a 14awg should be ok.
