Obvsiously, there is no one answer for this question, and we couldn’t answer directly, but we collected various quadcopters and maked a table chart for you.
For helping you to find the correct quadcopter, we also will tell you how to calculate the quadcopter carry weight.
How much weight can a quadcopter carry?
There are some many drones in the market, to easily figure out how much can a quadcopter lift? Some famous drones ( including for Surverying, Agriculture and aerial photography ) were collected and organized into a comparision table of carry
weight as below.
|Surverying||Trimble||ZX5||6 brushless motor||2.7KG||2.3kg|
How to calculate the quadcopter carry weight?
If you plan to build a quadcopter, it’s very necessary to know the calculator formula about quadcopter carry weight as below,
Quadcopter carry weight = ( Motor Thrust * Num of Motors *Hover Throttle % ) – The weight of the craft itself.
How it work? You could check this post Simple formula about quadcopter weight calculator and thrust calculator.
Aerial photography (AP) quadcopters load more capacity than surverying, but quadcopters for agriculture are load max capacity which is up to 20KG even more.
All quadcopters for aerial photography carry capacity are not too much between 1kg and 4KG, except DJI professional AP quadcopters such as S1000+.
The more carry capacity require bigger motor, propeller and ESC to work.
Now do you know how much weight can a quadcopter carry? if not, you could leave your messages on here, that’s welcome.
