How does a quadcopter work ?

The working of quadcopter is simple when you have Ready To Fly quadcopter, but still people find it difficult to fly.

Now, you would be thinking the number of propellers doesn't matter, but it is the only thing which matters the most.

  1. Tricopter - Copter with 3 blades is not that balanced and doesn't have a stable flight.
  2. Quadcopter - Copter with 4 blades, is the most popular but it's also not the most stable.
  3. Hexacopter - Copter with 6 blades, is least common but is quite stable and perfect for a beginner
  4. Octacopter - Copter with 8 blades, is not too much common but provides great stability and in case any motor fails, the other are there to keep the copter flying.

This shows that the number of propellers matters the most.

What about the frame ?

The lighter the frame, great is the flight time.

Mainly plastic frames are used for recreational purpose but I tell you carbon fibre frame and propellers are the best we can get.

Now the working :-

When the flight controller receives a command in form of a signal, it interprets it and follows the command. Such as you have given a command of increased throttle, the flight controller will interpret it and run the motors fast.

This would generate more thrust and higher speed which means less maneuverability.

Last words

If you want to buy a new drone, refer my blog and if you want to get to know how to fly a copter, just send me a mail and I will reply you within 2 Days.

Good Luck !!!
