Drone is a flying device that is controlled with a remote by a user. Its Technological term is UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) or UAS (unmanned aircraft systems). Drones fly using multiple Engines mounted on arms that extend from the center. Most drones have cameras mounted on them to capture photos and record videos from the air. Drones can be piloted via a controller or a smartphone app.
Types of drones?
There are different types of drones available. But there are 4 major types of drone.
- Fixed Wing Drone: It uses one wing like a normal aeroplane to provide the lift rather than vertical lift rotors. So that it only needs to use energy to move forward, not hold itself up in the air.That is why it is able to cover longer distances, map much larger areas, and loiter for long time monitoring its point of interest.
- Single rotor Drone: It consists of one rotor, which almost looks like a small helicopter. It has a big advantage to take off and land vertically. Which helps it to fly in a small area. And these types of drones can perform different types of stunts.
- Multi Rotor Drone: These type of drones consist of several rotor blades and the come in a wide range of setups. Like Tricopter, Quadcopter, Hexacopter and more.
- Fixed-Wing Hybrid: Even though it takes-off and lands vertically, it comes in different variations, like: a fixed-wing paired with a vertical-lift motor,tail-sitting aircraft which points vertically for take-off, then pitch over to fly horizontally, tilt-rotor models that feature rotors that can rotate from pointing upwards to a horizontal position.
How drones work?
There are different types of drone. But mostly used are quadcopters. Quadcopters are connected with individual motors which allow them to move at different speeds . There are four motors available in a drone, where 2 of them moves clockwise and the other 2 moves anticlockwise, which help them to fly. When the rotation increases the drone starts to fly up and when the rotation decreases, the drone starts to fly down.
Drones can be used in various ways.
- Aerial Photography
- Search and rescue
- Weather Forecasting
- Wildlife Monitoring
