SUNLU PLA Carbon Fiber filament: Is it Good for Drone Frames?
3D-printed FPV drone frames offer a number of advantages over traditional frames made from carbon fiber or other materials. Firstly, they can be completely customized to suit the pilot’s specific needs, allowing for greater control over the design process and resulting in a perfectly optimized frame. It is great for prototyping, allowing testing of different design approaches conveniently and at a low cost. For example, in just a few hours, I 3D printed four FPV drone frames of different designs and sizes using 250 grams of SUNLU PLA-CF filament. Another plus when using 3D-printed parts or an entire frame is their relatively low density. The number of perimeters and infill percentage can be adjusted to decrease weight significantly.
When it comes to 3D printing drone frames, choosing the right filament is crucial. The material used will determine the frame’s flexibility, strength, durability, and weight, all of which are essential factors for a…
