Efficiency test : hexTronik DT700 and 24 propellers - GWS 9x5x3 added


24 propellers: 10 APC, 2 EPP, 5 GemFan, 2 Graupner, 4 GWS and one HobbyKing.

Fixed parameters:
Motor: hexTronik DT700 11.1V, max 13A.
Batteries: Turnigy nano-tech 3S 4000mAh 35-70C, fully charged before each test
ESC: Hobbywing Pentium 30A - Timing mode: Middle
Turnigy Servo Tester and GWS Servo Tester MT-1
Junsi PowerLog 6S Wattmeter - LogView software - Soehnle scales
These measuring devices are not lab grade but are suitable for a comparison.

Tests have been made in two steps:
1 - Half throttle, most significant, usually used for hover
2 - WOT, maximum thrust and current
The Turnigy Servo Tester used has a fixed center position giving a 1.486ms pulse.
Max pulse is 1.976ms.

Graupner props were not as efficient as expected with this motor.
They have been tested twice to confirm.

Here is what I've got:

very good. Thank you. If you have a chance, can you try out Xoar wooden props too? they make 10x5 CW and CCW .

Do all the props tested come in CW and CCW to suit multi-copters?

Knowing what RPM the said prop hits it’s thrust ‘sweet spot’ would be useful but to call Mortimer’s work ‘nut sure if this result is useable’ and ‘nice and interesting to do, but does not help’ is uncalled for.
He spent a lot of time getting these numbers for us, use them or go away.

well if a stupid person were to pick ANY of the above props then look at the thrust numbers and times them by four then build a quad to that weight wouldnt they then hover at center stick? while drawing 4x times the amp draw numbers? meaning they would know which lipo to pick to deliver needed amp draw while staying under a certain weight?

or

times listed thrust by 4 build quad lighter than number you get and know you have built something that DEFINATLY has enough thrust to fly?

looks pretty usefull to me

Forgive me but I thought to FLY the weight should not exceed half of the thrust, i.e. 4 x 1000g (max thrust) = 4kg so craft should not be heavier than 2kg ALL UP WEIGHT inc battery, camera etc

which is why the data is so good Mortimer did the 1st set of thrust numbers at 50% throttle the other set of numbers are at full throttle

so if you read his post then read my last reply using the 1st set of thrust numbers your good to go
