After finding that the bits we wanted were not available Jack and I
spent more time today going over options, and settled on this:
- NTM Prop drive 50-60 380kv motors
- 18x5.5 props
both were in stock in Australia, and make for very simple mounting. The
motor is a bit overkill, but means we are well below its maximum specs,
so it should be a happy motor, and it gives us more confidence the
motors will handle high wind if need be.
eCalc says we will be hovering at 62% throttle, assuming a without-drive
weight of 10kg. The porter dry weight without the quad parts is
8.8kg. With fuel the 10kg estimate will be close.
