What motors are people using for the drone project? Is there a standard part? or any motors that meets the spec is okay?
If you are going to use the FCU for a minidrone below 100g (like the one in the Youtube video) the recommended motors are DC coreless 8520 motors:
- 8520 refers to the motor size
- there are different KV types, it means faster or slower with the given battery voltage
They are quite standard and you may find in many different online stores or just google "8520 coreless motor"
In case you would like to build a bigger/more powerful drone with DC brushless motors and external ESC, in that case the selection is very wide and depends on the drone frame size.
