噴塗無人機,要注意什麼?


5

我真的不喜歡無人機上的顏色,發現我家周圍有一些鮮豔的噴漆顏色。我想噴塗無人機,但是我顯然不想損壞無人機的任何部分(電機,電氣組件等)

  • 這樣做安全嗎?
  • 繪畫時我應該注意什麼?我應該避免觸摸無人機的任何特定區域嗎?
  • 我該如何使油漆不洗掉無人機墜毀等?我有什麼可以申請的嗎?

If you have the technical know how, I would suggest you remove the shell from the drone and spray paint that separately to avoid contamination any of the electronics or mechanical components.

If you aren’t able to do that, then apply masking tape and/or plastic or any other protective layer over any exposed electronics, cameras, ports, motors etc. Basically anything functional. Also make sure not to point the propellers as this could lead to them being unbalanced.

Before you paint the drones, you may want to scuff the surface with some sand paper. This will provide better adhesion for the paint - if you’ve ever tried writing in marker on a smooth surface, you know how difficult it is to stick.

After you have applied your paint, you can add a clear coat and a fixative to protect the paint.

Here is a video showing how to spray paint a drone: https://youtu.be/5aSsd3tCJ-c, notice how the person completely disassembles the drone before applying the paint.

You may also want to consider a vinyl wrap of hydro dipping as decent alternatives to spray paint.

How much mass will this coat of paint add, and can your drone cope with that additional weight ? This could result in a decrease in flighttime-per-charge, a drop in maximum climb rate, and a lower top speed due to a rougher outer surface.

Paint can be surprisingly heavy (a 747 uses around 90 gallons of paint weighing in the vicinity of 550 pounds) and the number of coats of paint factors into range calculations.

Don't paint your props at all - even a thin layer will mess up their performance.
