I’ve been looking into this question as well before buying parts for my next build. Here’s the information I’ve extracted from thrust test data provided by EngineerX. He provides a link to a spreadsheet of the data in the description of each of his videos.
I’m planning to build 130mm size quad using 1106 motors and only want to use 3S.
After analyzing the thrust test data, I see that I can choose between using 4500kv with 2" prop or 6000kv with 3" prop.
Below are the thrust test figures for each motor paired with the prop that I want to use.
If I use the same size battery, eg. a 550mah 80C 3S, the 4500kv with 3" prop should give me longer flight time.
Anybody have an idea what the flight characteristics will be like between these 2 setups?
Which one will let me do tighter/ faster 180 degree turns?
