Hexacopters

Hexacopters are drones with six motors.

Theoretically, hexa-copters are not just more stable (over four-motor design - quadcopters) but also should offer some redundancy on motor failure.

Usually  hexacopters are used for commercial applications like aerial filming. Thanks to the six-motor design, they are more powerful allowing greater payload.

Yuneec Typhoon H with 4K camera

Yuneec Typhoon H hecacopter
Yuneec Typhoon H with collision avoidance When Yuneec reveled its incredibly Typhoon H hexa-copter at CES 2016, everyone was amazed by its capability to avoid obstacles. Contrary, I was more impressed by the capability of Yuneec Typhoon H to land even if one motor fails. Typhoon H’s six-rotor design automatically switches to five rotor mode in case one motor fails allowing to remain in air and have a...

LiDi RC L6F review
LiDi RC L6F hexacopter with complete 5.8GHz system Since I started my journey in the world of multi-rotors I hesitated to make reviews on hexas, don't ask me why because I can't specify any real reason. It looks that 2016 changed my appetite because this LiDi RC L6F will be the second hexa copter which I review this month :). Theoretically, hexa-copters have all the benefits of a...

Fayee FY805 micro haxacopter review

Fayee FY805 hexacopter review
Fayee FY805 World's smallest haxa-copter Hexacopters like this Fayee FY805 offers greater stability compared to the 4 motor design (or at least it supposed to be). But sadly, each concept has its advantages and disadvantages. More parts means higher chances of failure. After I received this tiny toy I was curious how it performs so I tested immediately. I had the misfortune...

Can I fly with one dead motor?

video
Can I fly my quadcopter with one propeller or motor loss? Usually the answer is No! For redundancy you will need at least a hexacopter but, the best for motor or prop failsafe operations are the octacopters. In the YouTube video below you can see what happens if you lose one propeller of your quadcopter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsHryqnvyYA Thanks for the new quadrocopter failsafe algorithm, the aircraft can recovery after propeller or...
