Advantages of integrated carbon fiber UAV shell:
From the perspective of the development history of UAVs, the endurance of UAVs has always been restricted by the development of the energy side. At this stage, the energy volume can only be increased under the premise of limited energy density to obtain a longer flight time.
However, the increase in the volume and weight of energy will lead to an increase in the size of the drone and increase the difficulty of flying. If a lighter material is used as the shell, it will effectively reduce the weight of the fuselage and provide more space for the energy end. Not only can it achieve faster speed and higher crawl height, but also greatly extend the cruising range and Service life.
In addition to the pursuit of light weight, the choice of shell materials for drones mainly focuses on the strength, toughness, and weather resistance of the material itself, which can effectively prevent damage to the body due to drops and enhance the impact resistance of the body. And so on, are also the key demands of drones for shell materials.
In the past, most of the UAV manufacturing materials were aluminum alloys, as well as a certain proportion of titanium alloys, steel, etc. Although these metal materials have high strength, they are heavy, and their specific strength or specific rigidity are not ideal, resulting in the payload of UAVs. Small and easy to reflect radar signals to form a secondary band. <br><br>The outstanding performance advantages of CFRP are light weight, corrosion resistance, low thermal expansion coefficient, strong fatigue resistance and seismic resistance, and the material itself has good electromagnetic shielding effect, and it can be integrated to produce different shapes and structures.
