What Motors, ESC's and Props seem to work best with the HF Pro and Octo Config


Hello All,

I'm beginning to build an MK Okto XL with the HF Pro. It seems that many of you have significant experience at this point in time with various configurations. What ESC's seem to work best with the HF Pro? I was planning on using Avroto 2814 Short Shaft Motors. Are these good motors? Also what props seem to work well? Thanks in advance for your input.

You will not find the golden answer as every set-up is different. I would suggest purchasing a range of props. It really depends on how much, if any gear you are going to haul. Start with 12x3.8 APC props and maybe Turnigy Plush 40amp esc's. This will get you flying in a proven range.
