I'm new to all of this and am trying to figure some things out. What does 550 refer to in regard to a 550 hexa multicopter? Is it 550mm from motor shaft to motor shaft on the diagonal,(the diameter of the hexagon, if there is such a thing)? I have had a very frustrating google search trying to find out this info. Thanks for any help.

550mm from motor shaft to motor shaft diagonal.

This seems to be the way Multi are measured. For example a Heavy Lift Hexa is usually in the 800-850mm. Examples are the Droidworx HLE and the new DJI S800 due out by spring.

Hope that helps.

Sometimes I think it is whatever the manufacturer wants to call it. My Xaircraft X650 actually only measures 550mm between motors when measured diagonally and 600mm when measured to the ends of the arms.

thanks for the feedback. I am trying to figure out how to design a multirotor frame that will fly. If I had one I would measure it and figure If I built something with those same dimensions it should fly. I'm sure it is not that simple, but that is the idea.
