Sometime pilots ask me how to calculate quadcopter load capacity? This question difficult to answer, becasue different quadcopters have different applications and have different performance characteristics. Today I will show you comparsion table of quadcopter load capacity from different applications,quadcopter brand name including DJI, Yuneec, Ghost, Wingsland, Walkera, XIRO, etc.
Quadcopter load capacity for Surverying
|microdrones||md4-200||15.5 N||800 g||394 g|
|Trimble||ZX5||6 brushless motor||2.7KG||2.3 kg|
Quadcopter load capacity for Agriculture
Quadcopter load capacity for aerial photography
The table above indicates that you will found some rules as below:
- AP quadcopters load more capacity than surverying, but quadcopters for agriculture are load max capacity which is up to 20KG even more.
- DJI quadcopters are good at aerial photography and have become famous in this field.
- All quadcopters for aerial photography load capacity are not too much between 1kg and 4KG, except DJI professional AP quadcopters such as S1000+.
- The more load capacity require bigger motor, propeller and ESC to work.
