RCT800 Parts List – actual parts used

Having recently built an RCT800 Hexacopter from parts I have a pretty good idea of what is needed to build a Multicopter and how the parts all fit together. Check out my UAV General Parts List if you are interested in a general description of the parts you’ll need.

There are literally thousands of ways to build a Multicopter now and the list of available parts and websites can be a little daunting. It’s a good idea to start out with a purpose and or goal in mind and then build your list before buying anything.  This can help you develop your desired parts list in a way to ensure success. This also lets you enter your craft specs into an online calculator tool like the XcopterCalc calculator which will point out any problems you might have and estimate your flight times.

**the list above produces a Hexacopter with great flight control and performance characteristics however I am not necessarily recommending these parts. This was a relatively expensive build and some parts such as the RC Timer 630KV motors have performed a little more poorly than expected (these motors have great performance but terrible prop mounts which introduce vibration into your aircraft).

One thought on “RCT800 Parts List – actual parts used

  1. I normally fly a DJI Phantom and just finished an F550. I recently bought an RCT800 frame and was not totally sure what to expect. I thought that a conversion from the F550 to the RCT800 would be just a matter of changing the arms but the mounts for the RCT800 look like they will take much larger motors than what I currently have.

    What are your thoughts on placing a much larger motor into the RCT800?
