More About Drone
Flying a drone, and maintaining a drone, can be an easy task if the correct procedures are followed. Flying Drones is a new and exciting field of Remote Controlled (RC) vehicles. The RC Drones are also very helpful for different applications. Keeping these drones flying well takes some real knowledge of how the Drone actually works.
How a Drone works:
Drones come in many blades and motor configurations. Some Drones have cameras or other specialized equipment attached. A Drone no matter what it has attached is still basic in function to all Drones. To attain flight the Drone requires lift. Lift comes from motors that spin props. There can be up to as many as eight motors and props. A centrally located gyro keeps the Drone stable and controllable. A remote dictates the direction of travel. As the Drone travels and performs acrobatic maneuvers the props are deviated by speed and pitch to control motion. The accessories such as Cameras,tools, and other tools are controlled by servos that correspond to the remote control.
These parts of a Drone need constant attention to keep the Drone performing well. Props should be taken off motor shafts and examined for cracks, distortion, and flex variance. When removing the prop examine the motor shaft for buildup of performance robbing hair or dirt in between the motor and the prop. The air-frame or motor platform should be constantly inspected for breaks, flex and foreign matter. The smallest buildup of foreign matter can cause a Drone to fly erratic. Remote controls should be inspected periodically for function and distance control. Remotes that don't past testing should be discarded or repaired. A remote malfunction can cost you the loss of control of your Drone. The results could be disastrous. See drone help for additional info.
