Can I ask here what is the typical recommended motor/prop combo for a F550 frame carrying a AG550/600 and Nex5?

My AUW of my current setup is just under 5.5lbs (with gimbal, camera, and all I think it is 5lbs and 4 oz) and I have found that my motors are not going to be up tot the task. I realize that I am limited to a 10" prop, but am using 4s. Right now my motors are 750kv.

Im running Avroto 2814s with apc 12x3.8 with the arm extensions, but mine weighs around 4kg with the ag550/nex5n with 16mm pancake lens, fpv gear and 2ea. 4000Mah4s or 2ea.5300mah4s running parallel. I also fly at 6000ft.+

I am using the avroto 2814 770kv motors and Graupner 10' props on 4S with my F550 without extensions.
No problems at all lifting the AG550v2 Gimbal and Sony Nex-5n...

That is strange, I don't know how watts play into it, but it seems 770kv should produce about the same thrust per volt no matter what the motor brand/watt rating, right?
This is what I have.. but no idea how accurate the raintgs are, but I had these laying around already.

Watts determines your max load. So if you use a 5" prop on a 100 watt motor, you will be safe to not burn up the motor, but if you put 15" prop on the same motor, you will draw more amp at the same rpm, which will be more than 100 watts causing you to burn up your motor.

Use this site to determine how many watts you will need.

Gopro Hero 3 Black Post Comparisons (1 min 20 sec)



**update** Did another pass through Speegrade then stabilized and added a lens distortion correction filter, straightened it right out, and aspect matte for cinematic effect. I'm love playing with this go pro and I don't even have it yet. I can't wait to play with footage I shoot.

What program did you use to edit the footage. I'm looking to upgrade from adobe premiere elements, was thinking Premiere pro and after effects, but not sure.

I use CS6 suite. You can get everything Adobe has for 50 bucks a month now. It is nice. Can go on two computers, legit.
