Earlier today I maidened a new S600 build:
Holybro Pixhawk 2.4.6 w/ GPS, 915mh temetry and power module
Lumenier BLHeli_S 35A x 4 Opto ESC
Sunnysky 2216-11 870kv w/ 1045 props
Frsky XSR Rx
3S @ 2200mAh (for now)
After I reversed my pitch control the maiden went very well. The craft was immediately flyable with stock setup per the ArduCopter manual. I accidentally entered circle mode but recovered and tried the land feature and was very impressed. Such a nice soft descent and touchdown.
I have included my 4 minute flight log. I have looked it over but would like to have you professionals weigh in on the results. I’d like some suggestions on where to go from here: How would you recommend I improve things? I want to use the drone as a mapping and aerial inspections. Smooth, stable and vibration free are my end goals.
Also, curious about your thoughts on batt/motor/prop combination. I noticed that I am at about 55% throttle to hover, and my AUW actually needs to be a bit higher. Am I underpowered? Or do I need to prop those motors differently? Should I be using 4S batteries?
