An excellent guide for those interested in designing and developing practical multi-rotor systems e.g. quadcopter UAV. This book provides a guide to selecting the major components required in developing efficient multi-rotor UAVs such as motor, props, ESCs, LiPo batteries, etc. It even provides guidance on the safe use, handling, charging, and storage of LiPos. It also provides essential theory details on the propeller and rotor design, even touching on co-axial rotor designs, and helps guide the theory application in today's practical designs. This book is definitely a must have for both hobbyists and experts alike.
