Why are racing drone frames made out of Carbon Fiber?
The reason many frames are cut from carbon fiber sheet is because carbon fiber is a composite material, being made up of many layers of interwoven carbon fibers that have been rigidly cemented within a binding matrix of epoxy. The popularity of carbon fiber as a frame material is due to its low weight and high strength. It is important to note that carbon fiber is an electrically conductive material. There are many frames that use a combination of carbon fiber and another material such as aluminium or 3D printed TPU (a flexible polymer) in their construction. The use of these materials is a great way to improve the strength of a frame, better protect components or simply to add flair to a design.
