Quick Guide: The Different types of material for Drone Frame

Drones are everywhere today, with wide range of types to choose from. Drone in the past are used only for military purposes, but in the present in had more usage than anticipated. Some could take those task such filming and other specialize task.

Drones are available in the market today that cost more or less. To have more fun on it, building one could be more satisfying and fulfilling. But building one, could be painful and tiring because of different components that needs to be assemble in order to make it fly.

After discussing in my previous post about drone motors, now I will differentiate each material for building a drone frame. Frame is needed to hold all the necessary components of the drone.

Let’s Begin!


  1. Wood

This is probably the cheapest material for building a frame. However, it may break quickly than other material but it is easily replaceable. Creating a frame using this material, could be tricky because you must find a wood that are strong enough without breaking quickly upon in any collision.



  1. Plastic

Probable those drones available in the market today, there frames are using this material. 3D printed molded plastic frames have become an incredibly popular amongst DIY drone enthusiasts. Generally, using a 3D printer to create a perfectly shaped plastic frame is something that only works on smaller drones. When using plastic sheets (not 3D printed shapes or objects), you can strategically use them on your landing gear or for the cover of your drone.


  1. G10

This type of material have similarities in the looks with carbon fiber, especially outside. However, this material is low cost than carbon fiber, but this is much stronger than other material except on carbon fiber.


  1. Aluminum

Aluminum can also be used when building your frame. It’s lightweight (though not as lightweight as carbon fiber), flexible, and is relatively easy to work with. You can use aluminum to build the entire frame, or simply use the material to supplement certain parts of the frame (arms, landing gear, etc.). Another benefit to aluminum frames is that this type of material is both inexpensive as well as readily accessible.


  1. Carbon Fiber

Probably, the strongest material on this list yet most expensive also. The reason why is simple: carbon fiber is very tough and extremely lightweight. It’s this combination that will make your RC drone fly better and consume less energy. Remember that carbon fiber impedes RF signals (you’ll learn about these later), so make sure that you keep this in mind when you’re mounting important electronic components.


This is the most used material for building a drone frame. But always remember that, building a frame depends on the availability of the material or the money you have. If you can afford, then go to the toughest material because it will definitely last long.
