Mini Quad Test BenchPhilosophy

We’ve been frustrated for a while that there seems to be a dearth of data out there related to ESC performance on a variety of setups. Some people have been great about providing thrust data, but we've always been looking for something a bit more comprehensive. We have collected a pretty large spectrum of MiniQuad ESCs and motors over the last few months, We've decided to do a bit of testing ourselves.

Methodology

HobbyKing very kindly sent us a thrust stand to use in this test. We have custom written a datalogger to utilize the load cell in the thrust stand as well as RPM sensors and current and voltage sensing.  Data is being logged at 1ms resolution, giving a great picture of what is happening at both the ESC and motor.  Visit the EQUIPMENT page for more information.

Test DataResults

Test results have been compiled here in an indexed searchable method that will make viewing and comparing results simple.  We are constantly working to better the experience and depth of data here, through additional display libraries and database management.  Lookforward to much more coming soon.  Visit the RESULTS page for more info.
