The right electronics are the first step toward creating flight, but a multirotor isn't going anywhere without good old-fashioned physics to propel it upwards. The choice of motors therefore plays a pivotal role in the success of the machine.

Nevertheless, this choice...

Electronic speed controllers (ESCs) in the hexacopter


ESCs translate the signal to an electrical supply. On a multirotor, every motor has its own ESC, and each ESC is connected to the flight controller. After computing the inputs, the controller directs each ESC to adj...
