Re: Crazyflie w/ Double Motors

Question for Tobias: What is the max sustained power each motor can handle? Has anyone burned one out before? You mentioned the power paths can handle up to 15W, but the motors themselves are rated at 4.2V, 800mA on the Seeed website. Is the max power of these motors really only 3.36W? (4.2V * 800mA...

Re: Crazyflie w/ Double Motors

Spent an hour getting one of the double motors mounted. Success. Even with only one side double-motored, the stabilization compensates for the changes in weight/power. The circuit really is designed well. Maneuverability is exactly the same. http://youtu.be/AmwariOhmjY Will repost when all motors ar...

Crazyflie w/ Double Motors

In order to put a micro camera/transmitter on my CF, I'll need extra SWaP (size, weight, and power). This will require more thrust and consume more battery power. I thought about doubling up the motors using the existing motor mounts (see pics) and using some of the extra payload capacity for a larg...

Re: Motors facing up or down??

Thanks Tobias,
Of course, you are right. I thought the motors would be connected in series for some reason. Thanks for keeping up with this thread/idea. Even short posts are helpful!

Re: Motors facing up or down??

Sorry, I don't think there's an advantage. Thrust is the same no matter which way the motors spin or the props are facing. I thought about doubling up the motors (see pics) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/102368910/2013-06-09%2016.44.50%20500.jpg https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/102368910/201...
