How to clean and maintain drones?

Drones also need respect and care. If you are a drone enthusiast, please be sure to develop a good habit of properly maintaining drones and their parts. Protecting drones from dust and dirt is your top priority. In fact, the designs of drones are slightly different, so they also have their own unique maintenance requirements. However, there are some common techniques and tools to ensure that your drone is in the best condition. Next, let's learn how to clean up drones together.

First of all, prepare a small toolbox to install the maintenance, cleaning and repair tools of the drone. Of course, these tools must match the brand and model of the drone.

How to clean and maintain drones

Necessary tools for drone cleaning:

1. A small soft cleaning brush: used to remove the dirt that may be trapped in the corners and crevices of the drone. If you can't find such a small brush, you can use a pipe cleaner instead.

2. Canned compressed air: It can be used to remove dust from the "sensitive parts" of the drone, such as the dust next to the motor or circuit board, and it will not damage the drone.

3. Isopropyl alcohol: It can make your drone's shell as clean as new. This cleaning agent can remove 99% of various stubborn stains such as dirt, grass stains, blood, etc., without damaging the circuit.

4. Microfiber cloth: If you want to take apart the drone for general cleaning, this cloth is indispensable. It can work with isopropyl alcohol and work together perfectly.

5. Three-in-one multi-purpose lubricant: Be sure to carry a bottle of three-in-one multi-purpose lubricant before flying the drone to prevent temporary needs.

Essential tools for repairing drones:

There may be minor malfunctions during the flight or landing of the drone. Because it is a precision instrument, any minor changes in its components will affect its flight status and service life. Therefore, you must be careful when dealing with drone failures, and prepare enough tools before going out.

1. Spare bracket: The bracket is one of the important parts for the drone to fly. Once a failure occurs, the drone must be landed immediately and replaced with a spare bracket. It is good to consult the drone supplier to determine the matching model of the drone's spare bracket.

2. Small toolbox: make sure you have the tools needed for fast on-site repairs. Maybe your drone is very high-end and does not require any tool maintenance, or you have already equipped with all the tools you need when you buy the drone, then maybe you need to prepare a small screwdriver to ensure that it is foolproof.

3. Soldering iron: You may not carry a soldering iron with you when you go out, but once the UAV's wires or electronics have a major failure, it would be better to have a soldering iron on hand. Bringing a soldering iron or not is one of the important criteria for distinguishing professionals from amateurs. However, if you have never used a soldering iron, it is best to ask an experienced friend to help, or watch the instructional video on the video by yourself.

4. Spare battery: This depends on the specific situation of the drone. If your drone has a replaceable battery, be sure to fully charge it.
