Even without understanding how they work, we know instinctively how essential propellers are to drones. Propellers serve to generate lift, allowing drones to gain altitude and hover in place. They also provide the propulsion that lets drones move around simply by “leaning” towards one side. For such soft plastic materials, it’s frankly wonderful how propellers achieve so much.
Most drone pilots have been flying with stock propellers, but have you ever considered swapping yours out for something with a different shape or material? How will this change your propeller’s performance? Check out our comparison of the different types of drone propellers.
