2. What You Need to Know When Select Drone Parts?


①Frame selection. The priority consideration goes to whether to choose a four-axis or six-axis drone frame. Six-axis frame is more stable for large load, while four-axis frame with small size is convenient to transport and suitable for outdoor operation, it is easy for newbie to get started. Drone frames from big-brand manufacturers are highly recommended, which could be more stable and durable.

②Motor set selection. The outer diameter of the frame arm needs to be taken into account when purchasing, the wrong size will cause mismatch. The load also needs to be considered, the heavier the load, the larger the motor required. You can select an integrated motor set directly, or buy motor, Base, and paddles separately because welding them by yourself can be cheaper. If you buy the spare parts separately, please note that the paddles and motors must match the correct CW and CCW code, and each drone must have the same number of CW and CCW.

③Flight control selection. Standard flight control for agriculture drones such as K++ . The open-source flight control requires strong software development skills which is not recommended to beginners.

④Battery selection. There are smart batteries and pouch batteries for drones. The battery must be selected according to the frame to avoid overloading or insufficient power supply. The most common battery on the market is TATTU. The battery interface model and communication protocol also should be cared
