Thanks ZDAWG

Work out your AUW and check thrust generated in grams vs W usage for the motor/battery/prop/throttle % of your choice.

I would look at the v3508 motors as the V range are the top of the line sunnysky apparently.

They have 380kv, 580kv, and 700kv. The 580 and 700 seem like good choices to me, the 580 being more efficient and the 700's good for heavier lifting. But check out the graphs and decide for yourself, and other users experiences here such as RDT (with his Tarot 690S build log thread). He had good experiences with the 580's, getting 20min+ flight times.

It's 775mm from one end to the other. If you come up with a solution please share, I'm not sure how I will transport mine around either.

Wow, thats a lot bigger than I expected. Those new style motor mounts look long. I plan on shortening the arms to only fit 12" props, so we will see how big it is after that.

It's "only" 700mm from mid motor mount to mid motor mount, and 350mm between each motor when folded out. Thats just under 14".
