Based on conceptual drone specifications, in paricular:
- payload weight,
- flight time,
- flight distance,
- flight speed;
- motor group redundancy;
- required capability to withstand certain wind speeds,
we calculate motor and propeller combination (actually the entire propulsion/power system is being calculated, which includes battery performance as well).
Such calculation will allow us:
- to understand necessary efficiency of motor and propeller combination (in gr per Wt), where balance between efficiency and wind withstand capacity can be met.
- to select optimal aerodynamic scheme of drone, X4, X6, X8 etc.
- to select the battery, based on balance of energy capacity (Watt-hours*kg), C-rating, operational climate conditions
