The technology used in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), better known as drones, has taken major leaps. The same technology in many smartphones like magnetometers, gyros, accelerometers, radios, GPS modules and processors, high resolution cameras, along with advanced battery technology, has made flying a drone popular for personal and professional use.
Here are some battery tips to get the most flight time for your UAV:
- It’s always great to carry a spare battery or 2
- Store your drone and battery in a dry place at or below room temperature, without exposure to direct sunlight
- Read and follow the instructions for charging and storing your battery
- Never install or charge a battery if it has physical damage
- Check to make sure your battery doesn’t overheat
- Make sure you drone components are in good physical condition - Safety first
- Your battery is critical to flying safely. If you fly too far out and your quadcopter runs out of power, it will either make an emergency landing or will crash
- Know your drones flying time, battery levels and where to read these levels - Don't push the boundaries of flying on low battery power
