Drones for sale : Drones are fun to fly but during the learning phase most of us end up crashing these sophisticated machines in trees or in the wall. Most of the drones are quite tough but the problem arises when the drone refuses to start again. Apart from this, there could be significant damage to the drone or there is a possibility that the stability of the drone gets impacted. In such a case you need to cancel the flying session and rather get the drone repaired. There are very few repairing centers but you don’t need to dispose of your drone. It is relatively easy to repair drone. You would just need a bit of patience and a few tools. You don’t need a lot of knowledge about electronic circuits while attempting a repair.
The best option is to find a service center or to send the drone to the manufacturer for repair but if in case you are unable to do so, here is how you can perform the repair of the basic issues.
- Bent Propellers – This is one of the most common damage that the drone suffers from. The best way to repair a bent or a broken propeller is to change it. The propellers are easily available online and they do not cost a lot. In case you are unable to find a new propeller, you would require a hair dryer to repair it. Blow the hot air on the propeller after removing it and rectify the shape of the propeller. The job is done.
- Faulty Battery – This is another common issue that drone owners face. The quick solution to a battery that doesn’t function properly is to check the insulation of the battery. There is a possibility that the battery is shorting with a component. This can easily be repaired by providing insulation with help of tape. And if the battery is old then the best bet is to replace the battery.
- Propellers are not working – If the propellers refuse to rotate, you need to check the motors. The first step to check the motor is to check the connection. Ensure that the wire connected to the motor is not broken and the motor is connected to the board. If in case, there is an issue with the connector, use a solder to weld the wire back and if in case the wire is broken from the middle, replace the whole wire. If in case the motor still doesn’t work, you need to check the motor and probably get the motor replaced.
- Broken Chassis – If the crash was really bad and the impact of the crash broke the body of the drone, then the best thing to do is repair the body with help of hot glue gun. You can also use resin for the repair work but ensure that you give ample time to dry the resin or the glue. Do not apply a lot of pasting solution as this may disturb the weight distribution of the drone.
These were some of the easy steps to repair the drone yourself. If in case you feel that you are unable to perform the job, the best thing to do is to consult the experts.
