Looking very good,Angel!
The retracts run smooth and the Hexa is keeping the altitude very well.

btw: don´t forget to also upload your videos to Youtube, please.

That is awesome performance angel especially without the DIMU, when will you fit that?

Also, what brand of battery are you running? 20mins is great with those motors I can only achieve around 10 - 12mins but my frame weighs 3kgs and I need to change my props to yours.

Any news on how others have gone with your design, you did mention a company in Spain will produce all the parts but does that also include the CF plate?

Can't wait to watch another video this is so well designed

I´m using Turnigy Nanotech 5000mA, 50c (523g, 38€)
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... duct=37497

This is the best quality/price I´ve found in my experience. Loading charge measured is 5300mA!. The most important is the "50c" in order to get long runs. A drawback is the "Nanotech", that usually has shorter life than "lipoly" classical. I´m testing a couple of this batteries and after 5 loads, charge droped only to 5200mA: very good for the moment.

I´ve installed already 3xDIMU´s in my 3xboards. Having an even better altitude control, mainly in ALT_HOLD. Anyway altitude with AIMU was already very good in this HEXA. Main reason I guess is the "ultra low" vibrations onboard.

There are several copters under constructions now, some of them already finished. Still wayting the spanish 3DPrint supplier feedback (I fear he underestimated the quantity of work vs price). Lets see...

About central plates is much easy to get. We have several suppliers working well.

Wait till you have some double digit cycles on those nano packs. I'm totally done with nano. Totally migrated to zippy flightmax and I've found the so much better in higher cycles and thus price/performance. My nano's did not last half a season and zippy 1 - 1.5 season
Also on my club almost everyone has stopped with the nano's, only the 65c are in use..

those retracts are looking really nice. do you think they would work on a 4kg copter?

Cheers,

Alex

@Alex:

Yes, I´m sure. RcTimer set the retractable servo for 5Kg, and they looks really strong. Obviously it will depend on how hard you land.
I´m using it quite a long time without a problem

Angel,

I found this thread after seeing your HEXA design on Grabcad. Any chance you can share the Solidworks model? I have a pretty nice home shop including 3D printing and CNC milling capabilities and want to tackle a hexacopter build with my son.

Gracias y un saludo desde Seattle!
