Heavy Loads

Carrying payloads heavier than 2.5 kg can generate significant inertial force and will require special considerations. Exceeding the thrust capability of the motor and controller with these loads can cause motor failure at high speeds resulting in a crash at the end of travel. For this reason, we recommend limiting the kinetic energy of payloads and not operating near the maximum possible acceleration or deceleration with payloads over 2.5 kg. The table below gives recommended maximum settings.

Load (kg) Maximum Acceleration Magnitude (m/s²) Maximum Speed (m/s)
2.5 8.0 1.9
5.0 4.8 1.3
10.0 3.2 0.9
20.0 2.0 0.7
50.0 1.0 0.4

Homing Settings

For payloads greater than 10 kg, the homing speed (limit.approach.maxspeed) and homing deceleration (limit.detect.decelonly) will also need to be reduced from their default values in order to allow the device to complete its homing routine without stalling or crashing.
