Hexacopter Guide

In recent years, multicopters for private use enjoy ever greater popularity. For while the use of drones in the military field is controversial, they find in the private sector a whole series of helpful applications have found. These are a real dream, especially for model airplanes. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, controlling them is very easy.

Hexacopter – General

At a Hexacopter it is a drone with six rotors. Thanks to this allows the Hexacopter the transport of heavy loads, such as a video camera or a SLR camera. In addition, the higher total weight of the Hexacopter ensures quieter flight characteristics. Very often that comes Hexacopter in the commercial area, because the speed differences that occur in the control maneuvers are better distributed to the overall construction, so quieter flight characteristics are granted. At the same time, more rotors mean increased safety when a motor fails. However, the control electronics must be able to register a failure of the engine in order to try to compensate for the power of the failed engine with the remaining engines.
In the hexacopter two different designs are distinguished. In the so-called X-shape, there is an additional boom on both sides. In addition, there is the design with the boom in the direction of flight. The view to the front is somewhat limited in the X-construction. Otherwise, the frames of the hexacopter can be made of either aluminum or plastic. The aluminum frames are less vibration than the plastic frames.
Experienced Drone Pilot offers Hexacopter the opportunity to fly more than just the fields. Thanks to the large payload, many different applications are offered.

How the hexacopter works

All multicopters work in the same way. The different rotors are arranged in a plane, acting vertically downwards, which ultimately the necessary buoyancy is generated. Both the takeoff and the landing take place vertically as in a helicopter. The navigation in the desired direction is done by the inclination of the propeller plane. The control of the drone is not cumbersome, but takes some getting used to. Therefore, for beginners simpler models of a drone are suitable. It is important to understand how this works before the first flight attempt.

Tips before buying

Who is for one Hexacopter interested must remember that this consumes more power than a drone with four engines. This means that a larger battery must be installed. Therefore, a hexacopter is heavier than a Quadrocopter, Therefore, before buying a hexacopter, the trunk should be measured. Although some Hexacopter can be easily disassembled and thus easier to transport, but this takes some time. Although the size of the hexacopter can be disturbing, it offers much more space for the accessories than, for example, a quadrocopter. The bigger the Hexacopter, the higher the price. For beginners, a hexacopter is not really suitable. Therefore, you should bring some experience before you buy a Hexacopter. However, if you still want to buy a multicopter, even though you have little or no experience with drones, a hexacopter is the better choice than a quadrocopter. The reason for this is the eventual detection of the failure of a drive by the control unit, whereby a crash can be successfully avoided, so that the slightly higher investment compared to a quadrocopter is worthwhile.
