first, nice Thread, very nice and informative Postings here.
Thanks for that.
As i am new to Qaudrocopter and all the areas around it and i am in the state of reading and trying to understand all.
And this Thread helped a lot.
But one thing i am not quite sure. I just can understand it well, maybe because of the lack of knowledge regarding electricity, to be honest i am sure it is because it the lack of knowledge
I am not getting the concept full of the C, discharge rate. I know how to calculate it etc. But how do i know how much i need ?
What i mean is, how do i know how much AMP my Motor do need?
I only have the 1000kv information on it and the props info. Also the max Amp of the ESC (in my case it will be 30AMP each)
So, from what i understand, a i am building a Qaudrocopter, i have 4 ESC with 30 AMP each, so they can use 120 AMP max.
Because of this i need a LiPo with i would say at least 3000 mAh and 50C = 150 max Amp
Am i right at this point?
What would happen if i have a 3000 mAh and only 25C = that's only 75 Amp, too less.
I am guessing, besides the effect the battery will not hold long, the motor will just not spin enough, it will be very slow maybe, maybe not enough power to lift the quad at all ?
What about the Motors, can you give them to much AMP ? I am guessing, to less AMP they will just not be strong enough to lift the quad.
What i mean is, for any reason the ESC is able to handle 60 AMP, Battery as well, and you throttle full, will the Motor be able to handle this? Does it depend on the Motor?
Also, from what i understand, hovering will use less battery then max throttle right ?
So, as i just want to do some nice smooth and slow aerial video etc. the flight time should be longer as with a FPV racing background.
Of course the weight will also count, but in general, just for my understanding.
Sorry if some questions sound stupid to you, i really tried to answer them by myself and while reading tons in articles and forum post.
What happens if you use more AMP then the Battery can handle?
ESC, does it use the full AMP all the time?
Does the Motor have a max Amp ?
