Power Systems & Testing

While I still do a lot of motor and prop testing it is something I stopped publishing on this Wiki in 2011. I do still publish some of my prop testing but lately this has been kept to just multi-rotor and a few FPV applications. The reason I have stopped is the enormous amount of time it takes to sort out and put together the results and there are other excellent sights doing the same work with much more comprehensive and consistent data to look through. These sites include:

Lots of motor and prop information here across many brands and sizes

Some of the best prop charts by motor (Scorpion and Cobra) on the web today

An excellent comparitive prop and motor calculator

So, the links listed here are basically charts and images of my own personal (previous) bench tests. The tests are run using the same batteries I fly with (sorry, no expensive power suppy!) and all tests are done with a fully charged battery unless otherwise noted. As a general rule, these tests constitute a sloped or stepped test snapshot of performance. For information on my test set-up, please see My Test Bench
