Frame

 

A drone’s frame is synonymous with a human being’s skeleton, it helps bring together important components, as well as providing protection.

Motor

 

The motor is the part of the drone that rotates the propellers. Larger UAVs typically use “brushless” motors while smaller UAVs typically use “brushed” motors.

Landing Gear

 

For an RC drone to land without damaging fragile hardware, it must have landing gear. Unlike airplanes, which have wheels on their landing gear, RC drones utilizes plastic, metal, or rubber materials to help cushion landings.

Electronic Speed Control (ESC)

 

The item that provides the flight controller with the ability to control the direction and speed of the drone’s motor. It’s a very important component to keep in mind when learning how to build a drone. Not only should an ESC provide the right voltage, but it must also be able to handle the maximum current that the motors are going to consume.

Raspberry Pi Zero

 

A super-small, hackable, and ultra-low-cost computer.

Propellers

All multi-rotor RC aircrafts use propellers (not to be confused with helicopter blades) to achieve lift. Propellers attach to the drone’s motors. When the motor spins, so do the propellers. Similar to drone frames, propellers can be made from a wide variety of materials, as well as exist in many different sizes.

GoPro

 

This is a popular sports/action camera that can be attached to RC drones with the proper mounts.

LED

 

To help orientate you to an RC drone’s location at night, it needs to have “Light Emitting Diodes”, or LEDs, attached
