One of the most important part of quadcopter is its frame because it supports motors and other electronics and prevents them from vibrations.

All components will attach to the frame. The first thing is that choose the right frame for you drone then other’s parts.

Really, anything works as long as the frame is strong enough to support the other five key components.

Making frame is truly depends on your imagination, skill and availability of material.


 

Brushless Motors & ESCs

The powertrain (motor, esc, props, battery) is responsible for getting a drone off the ground.

Infact whole power system depends on selection of motor so you should be very careful while selecting motor.

If you have four arms, you have four propellers, and you need four brushless motors and four electronic speed controllers.


 

LiPo Battery

With top-of-the-line LiPo batteries, the drones can stay airborne for 10 to 30 minutes at a time.

Max current rating is another important factor while selecting motor. Selection of ESC and battery depends on this value.

The more weight, the more energy required to lift the aircraft and the less time the battery will last.

Therefore it’s the best wayt to choosing the excellent brands.


 

Radio Transmitter & Receiver

The transmitter you choose determines how clear the images you get are

The number of channels available in your transmitter determines how well you can control your FPV quadcopter. With the normal transmitters having about 4 to 9 channels, the more the number of channels, the more control you have such as changing the flying mode, deploying landing gear, turning on lights, etc.

We recommend a controller with six inputs or more.


 

Flight controller

Flight controller is the most important one, I regard the flight controller as a brain which will stop flying when its components fail.

In my experience, drone can be devided into 3 flying styles, there are Cinema Flying, Sport Flying and Autonomous Flying, we should find out the right flight controller, which is good at your drone flying style.

Price is important, but certainly so is quality.


 

Battery Charger

Getting the best battery charger for quadcopter is crucial if you do not want to be left in the lurch while having fun with your drone.

Remember, LiPo batteries back a significant amount of energy. Having a reliable charger will let you continue to operate your drone for hundreds of flights.

Keep in mind, its quality is unparalleled and secondly, the charge current rate and power are quite impressive.

It’s always smart to have extra propellers in hand.

When your drone crashes, the propellers will bear the biggest force of the impact.

Type of prop is important as well but we will see effect of diameter and pitch on flight of quadcopter.

Having extras on hand will keep you flying even when mistakes happen.
