Everyone has their individual needs but, don't worry, we will show you how to select the best drone frame in a few easy steps.
1. Make sure you understand frame types
There are different types of frames available on the market, e.g. tricopter, quadcopter, hexacopter, and octocopter, etc.
Above all, you need to be 100% sure which type of drone you want to build. If this is the first time you have built one, we strongly suggest you select the quadcopter.
2. Determine the material
The most common frame materials are: carbon fiber, aluminum, and wood. Plywood is the most common material thanks to being light weight, east to work with, and good vibration absorbing features.
Pick the material based on your needs and requirements.
3. Ensure which function you want
Before making the decision, the third thing you need to do is decide which function(s) you want.
● Mini drone: select a small one
● Getting video footage: pick up a big one which can support the camera
● FPV function: choose a firmly one which can lift the action cameras
4. Check the other components to be applied to the frame
You also need to make certain that the controller and motors will be suitable for the quadcopter frame that you have selected.
