From previous research I've done for optimizing a pick of a battery based on thrust and ESC amp draw, the following information seems to be missing from the published specs:
- ESC specs (at least max amp draw is needed to figure out current draw requirement for battery)
- Motor specs (for calculating thrust based on propeller specs)
- Propeller pitch angle (needed for thrust calculation)
Please add the above information to the official specs.
Thanks for your interest in the Intel Aero Platform.
We appreciate the references that you provided! You should know that we are still working on the documentation for the Intel Aero. Still, we would investigate more about your concerns and get back to you as soon as we have some useful information.
Have a nice weekend!
So, I'd really like to get my drone off the ground before the 30 day warranty expires. If you check the recommended battery thread, a couple of real world tests have been done. It's still not clear what C rating is required.
How soon on can we expect these basic specs to be published so the community can figure out battery options?
P.S. Thank you Intel for making such a great development platform! I look forward to using it.
I appreciate your patience.
These are the specs for the Motor and the ESC:
Operation Current : ≤ 15A
Min rpm ：2500 RPM
Max rpm ：8200 RPM
We are still working on the Propeller specs, as soon as I have this information available I will let you know.
Thank you for your patience.
Unfortunately the propeller pitch angle is not specified by Yuneec. Nevertheless, I encourage you to measure the pitch angle and share your results with the community. We would appreciate it and it will definitely help other users.
