How To Make A Drone (Quadcopter) Using Simple Tools
Since the inception modern technology, there have been diverse forms of inventions and research done. Drone is one of them. A drone is an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate autonomously, without human control or beyond line of sight. Any unmanned aircraft or ship that is guided remotely and is a radio-controlled device is called a drone.
Today, I will be teaching you how to make a drone (quadcopter) using simple homemade equipments. Although this homemade drone doesn’t make use of a rear camera.
Step 1 – Get a battery
Get a battery consisting of one or more electro chemical cells with external connections. Any battery that has 4 electro chemical cells. (Those lines on top of the battery, where you insert into a phone).
Step 2 – Get four Propellers
A propeller is a device with a rotating hub and radiating blades that are set at a pitch to form a helical spiral, that, when rotated, performs an action which is similar to Archimedes’ screw. It transforms rotational power into linear thrust by acting upon a working fluid, such as water or air.
Step 3 – Get four ice cream stick
Otherwise called popsicles. Ice cream stick is made of natural wood. They are of very high quality and the surface of ice cream stick is smooth.
Step 4 – Get four motors
An electric motor is an electrical machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Most electric motors operate through the interaction between the motor’s magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding to generate force in the form of torque applied on the motor’s shaft.
Step 5 – Arrane your ice cream sticks
Next you need to do is to arrange your ice cream sticks (popsicles) in a box form as displayed in the picture
Step 5 – Get an evostic gum, apply on the popsicles
Next you get any good and quality evostic gum, apply on the feame and edges of the popsicles as displayed in the photo above and leave to dry. This is to enable the popsicles stick permanently
Step 6 – Get wires for motor, Fix motor on feame
After carefully applying the evostic gum on the edges and they’re left to dry, fix the motor on the feame of the popsicles and leave to dry.
Step 7 – Fix battery and propellers on Ice cream stick
After leaving the evostic and motor to stick to the ice cream stick, you then fix the battery on top of the ice cream stick and the propellers follows suit. The propellers are to be placed on the motors. This is to enable the propellers spin
Step 8 – Connect Wires to battery
Get a good electrical wire, connect to the 4 electro chemical cells. make sure the battery is fully charged.
Your drone is ready for practical testing.
