There are several components that are typically found in a drone:

  1. Propellers: These are responsible for providing the lift that allows the drone to fly.

  2. Motors: These are responsible for turning the propellers, and are usually located at the ends of the drone's arms.

  3. Flight controller: This is the central computer that controls the drone's movements and maintains its stability in flight.

  4. Battery: This powers the motors and other electronics on the drone.

  5. Radio transmitter and receiver: These allow the pilot to remotely control the drone, typically using a handheld transmitter.

  6. GPS: This helps the drone determine its position and navigate to specific locations.

  7. Cameras: Many drones are equipped with cameras for capturing aerial photos and videos.

  8. Sensors: Drones may also have various sensors, such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers, to help them maintain their orientation and stability in flight.

  9. Frame: This is the structural support for all of the other components, and it also serves to protect them from damage.

  10. Landing gear: This helps the drone to take off and land safely.
