Transmitter Power Output


TRANSMITTER POWER SETTING
EU limits output power to 100mW
US limits output power to 200mW = 200mW output power 2.4GHz RF

0dbm = 1mW
3dbm = 2mW
6dbm = 4mW
10dbm = 10mW
20dbm = 100mW
23dbm = 200mW

Motor Amps using battery MAH rating and flying time


Calculate motor amps from flying time

Motor amps ?
If you start with a full battery and get an accurate time how long the battery lasts, you can figure out the average current that the motor drew during those minutes.

Amps = (mah) x (1amp/1000ma) x (60minutes/1Hour) / (RunMinutes)
Amps = (mah) x (60/1000) / RunMinutes
Amps = 0.06 x mah/minutes

Example: Amps = 0.06 x mah / Minutes
Amps = 0.06 x 1000 / 6 = 10 amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 1000 / 3 = 20 amps average current = 1000mah battery that lasts 3 minutes
Amps = 0.06 x 1300 / 3 = 26 amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 1300 / 4 = 19.5 amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 1300 / 5 = 15.6 amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 1300 / 6 = 13 amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 2000 / 6 = 20 amps average current = 2000mah battery that lasts 6 minutes
Amps = 0.06 x 2000 / 3 = 40 amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 680 / 6 = 6.8 amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 680 / 3 = 13.6amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 900 / 6 = 9 amps average current
Amps = 0.06 x 900 / 3 = 18 amps average current

Well, more or less. Pick a ratio of MAIN/TAIL and apportion the total amps
A good ratio may be 3/1 where main = 75% and tail gets 25%
