Are there any guidelines for building a quad/X8? Specifically boom angles and whether or not the motors must be placed in a perfectly symmetrical manner. Or will a good flight controller compensate for a non-symmetrical design?
Right now (if I stick with the tentative design) the boom tip to boom tip distance, across the center, is 36 inches (about 915mm.) The distance from boom tip to boom tip, not across the center, is about 26 inches (about 660mm.)
The frame, a dog bone shape, and booms are designed/assembled to fold onto each other for portability and quick deployment. Iíve not yet decided on motors, props or ESCs but will welcome any suggestions. Iím thinking of using the XAircraft SuperX Pro flight controller. Again, ideas and suggestions are welcome.
Itís going to be used for photography and video, since Iím not sure what this multi-rotor will lift, Iím not going commit to a specific camera/gimbal set up, just yet. Although Iím hoping it will haul at least a Black Magic Pocket Cinema camera, a Sony RX100 or better.
Thanks in advance,
