Why test your motor, propeller, ESC and power source?
Unmanned aerial vehicles are getting better every year. Whether you are trying to inspect power lines, to carry large a payload to a remote part of Canada, to win a race, or to publish a revolutionary machine learning paper on quadcopter control, you can expect the best performance from your drone. A poor motor-propeller match can lead to overall efficiency under 35% in some cases. This means drastically lower flight times, as well as reduce motor life due to the extra heat produced.
Objective of this documentation
Our documentation section is intended to explain in a concise way the best test practices as well as how to use our tools. We work hard to make our tools user friendly. Our articles contain detailed walkthrough of the installation of every tool, as well as various testing tips. We also include a list of various potential problem and how to solve them.
Our theory section presents the motor and propeller equations as well as explanations that will allow you to gain an intuitive understanding of motors and propellers. The number of test required can be greatly reduced when you have good understanding of the results! We strongly recommend that you take 30 minutes to watch our introduction videos and read our articles. It will save you time in the long run.
