Default SH Spyder 700 4S Setup (X4 Configuration)

Hello Folks

Just purchased a spyder 700 kit and need some help with motor and prop selection.

I plan on using the T-Motor MS2814-11 710KV motors. What would a good size for props for long flight times. I wont be doing any FPV.

I have 3x 4500 lipos and 3x 5000.

It's not that no one wants to help, no one's here. If the weather's nice they're out flying.
You might read the Spyder 700 build thread and post in there.

I don't know that I would recommend that motor as the best for the Sky Hero 700. Here is a link to the most information that I have found http://www.heliproshop.com/t-motor-m...tor-710kv.html my concern is the thrust to weight ratio and the fact that at best you are using a 13.4 prop and the optimum is more like a 10x3 or 11x3 for max efficiency.

While FPV really isn't much of a factor in motor selection - how much weight you wish to carry/lift or your AP objectives are important.

Are you looking to do AP?

T-Motor MS2814 770KV: why not these?

I am not looking to do AP. As for the weight that I will be hauling, it'll just be the weight of the quad a lipo.

I think that you have a lot of options, I would just make sure I did the research to understand the benefits of the different motors. The ESCs are also worth taking a look into - do you want to program them or just looking for plug-n-play.

PM me if you need any help and I will certainly share what I know and have learned. I started out with the stock SH motors and then upgraded to the pancake mount and KDE motors and KDE ESCs and couldn't be happier. The stock motors were fine, I just now have more speed and lift with the KDE motors....truth be known, perhaps a little too much lift. KDE have excellent quality in the mfg and support.

I prefer to have PNP escs. My tinkering skills are close to none!

As for getting pancake motors, I dont see the need for those because I wont be lifting a camera or anything for that matter. Except for the weight of the quad itself of course. Hence, the reason of thinking about going with 700kv motor.

I believe for my needs the skyhero 40a escs are more than enough. As for the motors I like the Antigravity MT2814-11 770kv motors. I currently have the the 13x6.5 props from the SH SPyder combo. Would be me a good match for the Antigravity motors? By putting those on, would I risk heating up the motor?

I think those props would be just fine, efficiency is greater with a 12" prop but those will work fine. Think you will be happier with the 770kv.
