Fourth you will need a battery to power all the electronics. Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries are the most popular batteries for the RC hobby. LiPo batteries are characterized by their number of cells (voltage) and capacity (mAh). Each LiPo cell has 3.7V so a 1S (1 cell) battery will be 3.7V a 2S battery will be 7.4V 3S 11.1 V and so forth. Capacity is rated in milliamp hours (mAh). The higher the number of mAh the longer the battery can power the quadcopter. Lastly you will need a frame to put all this onto. There are many commercially available quadcopter frames. Some are in the + configuration which means one of the arms acts as the "forward" orientation. Some are in the X configuration which means that "forward" is between two of the arms. There is also the H frame where forward is on the flat side of the H. H frame is great for FPV and aerial photography since the rotors are out of the way.
The battery that comes with the model is a 1S 3.7V 500 mAh LiPo battery and provides about 10 minutes of battery life. The battery does take about 45 minutes to charge so you might want to get yourself a couple extra batteries so that you can fly for longer periods of time. They are pretty cheap and provide for much more fun! And dont worry about crashing as long as you are over grass you can pretty much crash it as much as you want. The carbon fiber spars are strong and the plastic canopy is durable. It is so light that there is not a lot of momentum built up in a crash so there is not a lot of damage that can occur. But if you DO happen to break something there are in depth tutorials online on how to repair your little quadcopter. It also comes with spare propellers and you can buy replacement parts online.
The remote controller comes with a few buttons that can be pressed to adjust flight modes. Basically there are two flight modes available with any quadcopter: manual and auto. In manual mode when you tilt the copter using the roll control and then let go of the stick the copter will not return to its initial position. Instead it will stay tilted to the angle where you left the stick. On the other hand in auto flight mode it auto-levels itself back to its original stance once the sticks are centered. Make sure you practice and experiment with your copter to learn all the controls separately before moving on to the next section. If youre not familiar with the controls you will never be able to fly a quadcopter in peace. It will either move too fast or go upwards and hit the ceiling. Also see how slowly you need to throttle in order to take the machine off the ground safely and expertly.
Should we be using different bearings for our high-speed rotor blades which are used on the most common drone types like the Quadcopter designs? I believe so as these drones need to be very reliable long range and will have important cargo onboard as part of their important missions whether on the battlefield commercial application or delivering you a very important pizza or Amazon package. This got me thinking that not only is this relevant to todays military aircraft space flight propulsion future jet engines but also relevant for high-speed little motors that spin well over 10000 RPM. If we want these motors to last and if there are multiple motors per flying craft; MAV - Micro Air Vehicle UAS - Unmanned Aerial System or PFC - Personal Flying Craft (Air Taxi) then it makes sense to use such technology.
