Carbon Fiber UAV Shell
Advantages of carbon fiber UAV shell:
In the history of UAV development, the endurance of UAVs has always been limited by the development of the energy side. At this stage, the energy volume can only be increased under the premise of limited energy density.
However, the increase in the volume and weight of energy will lead to the drone's increasing size and difficulty of flight. 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. In addition to achieving faster speeds and higher crawl heights, it can also greatly extend the cruising range and service life of the aircraft.
The choice of shell materials for drones is not only determined by the desire to reduce weight, but also by the material itself's strength, toughness, and weather resistance, which can be effective in preventing damage from drops and improving impact resistance. The drone industry also has many key demands for shell materials.
A certain proportion of the UAV manufacturing materials used in the past were aluminum alloys, titanium alloys, steel, etc. Even though these metal materials are strong, they are heavy, and their specific strength or specific rigidity aren't ideal, which results in the payload of UAVs. Small and easy to reflect radar signals in order to form a secondary band. Lightweight, corrosion resistance, low thermal expansion coefficient, fatigue resistance, seismic resistance, and electromagnetic shielding are some of the outstanding performance advantages of CFRP, which can be integrated into different shapes and structures, and has good electromagnetic shielding properties.
