Help!
Help me to decide about a small Hex FPV size

please help me to decide about the dimensions of the new model !!!

I would like to make a true FPV model, a small hex...

I have a certain design in mind but I would not want to start working on it before I'm completely sure about the size...

because as always, it is a closed model type and I need to know in advance the size of all electronics

So, my question for those who fly a small hex FPV model is:

what is your preferred prop size? max 5-6'' or 7-8''
the size of the batteries and the number of cells?
and anything else that comes to your mind

I would like to make a very small model, but again I do not want it too be too small for all electronics

Thank you in advance!!!
Denis

Start with an estimated weight. That will then determine the Prop size and then Motor size and then #cells.
You can get go ideas of these specs from reading through the various threads on mini-Hex copters.

thanks for the advice waltr


but I think I've asked the question a bit wrong....

I have an idea in my head about FPV mini hex design

My idea so far includes this basic electronics:
-max 6'' props
-22xx motors size arms
-4S 2200mAh size compartment
-place for gopro and similar cameras
and all other necessary electronics....


but once when I made all the molds I can not change the size of the model unless I make a new molds....

so I wanted some info about best "mini" hex prop size
and common battery size since this is the most important data because the battery will be inside the hull

If I make a place for 4S 2200mAh anything larger than that will not fit inside
and if I make too much room inside the model it will affect the hull weight....



so the idea was to get some information about preferred electronics
and maybe some preferred option for electronic layout....

But yes, I agree.... I should have browse through the other similar topics
