Drones have really come into their own over the past couple of years. Once a word that wasn’t really understood by the masses, they have made their way into households all across the world, appealing to people of all ages. They’re not just your average flying instrument, as we already know; they can house all manner of important objects such as recorder and cameras, and are so precise in their movements that we can get them exactly to where they need to be for our own benefit.

Along with any other organization, schools at all levels need to make sure they're keeping up with essential technology. It's important for them to consider the tech they use to keep everything running, as well as the technology they offer to students to help them with their learning. Whether it's an elementary school, high school or college, there are some important factors to take into account when thinking about which types of tech are most important to use. Anyone involved in decision making when it comes to technology provisions in a school should think about the needs of both staff and pupils to decide what tech they should be using.

If you are into your technology, you will probably be aware of a number of distinct advantages that it tends to provide. If you find that you are drawn to certain pieces of technology rather than others, you might wonder how that could be the case. But as it happens, this is relatively straightforward to work out. In this post, we are going to look at some of the major things that techies tend to love about technological devices and software which re on the market today. Take a look through the following and see if you can figure out if any of this applies to your own techie tastes.[right-post]

Some people see their job as a means to an end, others look at it as a life choice and not work. Either way, everyone has to make money somehow. If you’ve been working a job that you hate, or can’t seem to find any career path that works for you, you might feel like you’ve hit a wall. But, just because you’re unhappy in work now, it doesn’t mean that will be forever.

When it comes to drones, whether for racing or just flying around with a camera, most people get into the hobby by buying an RTF (Ready-to-Fly) model and learning the basics from their first machine. But once those early flights are under the belt, many hobbyists start to wonder just what goes on inside the drone and the idea forms to want to build a machine from scratch. There is a lot that goes into building a drone and it is endeavor that should not be attempted lightly. The first step would be getting familiar with what every part of a drone means in the world of drone building.

Understanding Drone Terminology

Building a drone takes a lot of practice and there are a lot of terms to become familiar with during the process. Understanding all the parts of the mechanics from center of gravity, landing gear, prop guards, and the difference between the shell and the frame is the first step. Knowing the different types of drones is important, too. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles come in different assembly types and how many motors and propellers they have. Another major area of understanding is in the area of propulsion. Knowing how power distribution is handled for each propeller is an important fundamental for drone flying.

Choosing a Frame

The next big step in building a drone is the decision of what type of frame and what kind of material for the UAV. The most common frame setups are the quadcopter and tricopter. These types have multiple arms each of which is connected to its own motor. More motors mean more thrust, so with an octocopter you get more lifting power but with a higher price tag. Materials for frames come in many varieties like wood, carbon fiber, printed circuit board, and plastic. Each has its pros and cons and usually comes down to price.

What’s Under the Hood?

So under the shell and frame, the drone’s heart truly lives. This heart consists of the motor, propellers, electronic speed controller, and the Lithium Polymer battery. There are several websites that offer parts for building drones but there are also industry standards that most drone hobbyist use like the Pulse LiPo battery. Learning what parts are best for your drone is part of the learning curve to UAV building. [right-post]
