  • A2212 Motor and 10×4,5 Propeller on the Test Stand; Thrust, Current and Speed Measurement

    For my quadrocopter I have chosen the drive combination of A2212/13T 1000KV motors and 10×4,5 propellers. It`s time to get some data for the dimensioning. What I want to know is of course the thrust and the current at different rotational speeds. From that I can calculate how heavy the multicopter can or should be and how long I can fly with it. I screwed the motor with the propeller onto my homemade test-stand and connected it with a 3-cell Lithium Polymer battery, a 30A ESC and the Unitest 2, that I bought some years ago. Then I started with the measurement.
