Things to consider when designing?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody tried to create a custom drone chassis on this forum? I'm looking to make a drone for a school project using the 3d printer, laser cutter and cnc mill. I have experience in Autodesk AutoCAD and Inventor. What things should I consider before going off and designing my drone?

I am building/printing one that was already designed, but I would assume that you would first take into account the size of the drone, and what you are looking for it to do. Racing drone? FPV drone? Just something that flies? Then think about the components and their sizes. For example, flight controllers are different sizes, so choose one and make sure your design fits. Also think about PDB (power distribution boards), compass/GPS, and the rest. Look online at other builds to get ideas...
