Upgrade Your Drone to Carbon Fiber Props

Posted by Francisco Farray on

If you are looking for a quick boost for your remote piloted aircraft, consider upgrading to carbon fiber props from Aeronaut. A propeller upgrade can increase your battery life, make your vehicle easier to control, and even improve the quality of video taken from the drone.

Carbon Fiber for Props

You've probably heard about carbon fiber and understand it is an advanced material, but what exactly is carbon fiber? First off, this is a composite material, meaning it is made from two or more different components with distinct properties. In the case of carbon fiber, the composite is made from a carbon and resin. The reinforcement comes from woven carbon fibers that give the material its strength. The matrix is a polymer resin that binds the fibers together. The advantage of this type of construction is that the carbon fibers can be oriented in the direction of load to provide strength where it is needed most, without adding unnecessary weight.

Light Weight Carbon Fiber Props

As a result, propellers made from carbon fiber are especially light weight. These props can turn at higher RPM with the same power, improving thrust performance. A lighter weight propeller will also have less rotational inertia. That makes for faster speed changes, resulting in a noticeably quicker throttle response.

High Strength Carbon Fiber Props

Carbon fiber propellers are also stronger and more rigid than other types of props. That torsional rigidity results in less vibration, which makes the aircraft quieter and more stable as a video platform. Carbon fiber propellers are also less likely to fracture in a crash, although they are certainly not indestructible.

Quality Carbon Fiber Props

Of course, the propeller material is not everything. The blade pitch and airfoil shape are critical to performance also. The Aeronaut CAMcarbon prop was designed using advanced CAD processes to ensure optimum blending of pitch and airfoil. The propellers are manufactured exclusively in Germany using computer machined molds to ensure the highest quality.
