Step 1: So you want to whoop. I think, the easiest— and in my opinion, the best— way to start is to get a toy quadcopter (quad) as the platform on which to build on.
Quadspex did a series of motor thrust tests that shows the power of 716 motors vs 615 motors into perspective. I’ve computed the thrust-to-weight ratios and summarized the results in the convenient table below:
|Motor||Thrust (g)||Total Thrust (g)||Thrust-to-Weight Ratio*|
|Stock 615 E010||7.83||31.3||1.252|
|RS 615 16000KV||9.3||37.2||1.488|
|RS 615 18000KV||11.2||44.8||1.792|
|MMW 615 17000KV||11.37||45.47||1.818|
|MMW 615 19000KV||13.03||52.13||2.085|
|Stock 716 E011||17.27||69.1||2.303|
|MMW 716 17000KV||18.47||73.9||2.463|
*Assumes 25g take-off weight for 615 quad; 30g take-off weight for 716 quad

*Note that these should be considered relative weights since I’m not sure if my scale is properly calibrated.
