Today we shall talk about the maintenance of your drone. This machine needs to be in perfect condition and you should perform periodic maintenance if it. Good care of your drone is necessary to protect it from the biggest enemy – the dust.
First of all, we must say that performing maintenance is very crucial.

Drone Maintenance - different parts

The Gimbal is one of the most fragile parts in the drones. When we talk about Gimbal, we have to be sure the wiring is clean, no dust particles inside. It is very important not to touch the wiring it with your fingers. Because the fingers haves grease and oil and we don’t want to put them into electronics.
For drone maintenance, we suggest you use an Air-blower pump ( Rocket Blower).

It is a super simple instrument but its doing is a perfect job. And also it is pretty cheap and easy to work with it. All its doing is to blows air in certain parts and gets rid of all that dust. When it comes down to cleaning the wiring and the Gimbal part this is just a perfect solution. Simply if you blow several times to your gimbal it should clean out any lust dust. 

Also performing this with the Camera and the camera lens. This is also a very important part to clean up.  

This “Rocket blower” is useful for the other parts also- such as the Motors. Now if you blow into the motors actually you will remove most of the dust. You don’t want to risk having a ton of dust building up with these motors. Because the coils inside the motors need to have clean contact with the magnets. Otherwise, you will lose motor power and eventually get motor failure. So this maintenance with air blower gets guarantees that you will remove all that dust and the motors will work properly and safely. All you got to do is to squeeze in the opening air and any loose dust should fly out. We recommend doing the same upside-down the drone. This way the dust will fly out of the motors. 

Also is good to do this procedure with the Heat sink of the drone. It is very good to clean the Head sink by blowing the dust from it. Next are the Ultrasonic sensors and optical sensors. After that, you can clean also the Collision Sensors

Another thing you can use is a dry cloth. Even you can use glass cloth. You just need to be sure the cloth is absolutely dry and clean. With such cloth, you can clean and polish the body of your drone and the parts with no sensors.  

The Remote controller also needs to be cleaned. You can do it with the Rocket Blower. Also the joysticks – they also need to be cleaned. Some dust may get inside also. 

The next parts are the Propellers. Their cleaning you can do with a cloth – to remove any dirt that can be accumulated on them. The clean propellers ensure correct and easy work of the motors. 

The Batteries

Check the contacts of the batteries, make sure there is no dust or dirt on them. Look at them and simply make few blowouts. Same thing to the battery compartment. The cables and the wires also need to be checked. Make sure that the protectors of the wires are in good shape. 

Finally, look and check your drone for any unusual cracks and scratches. You have to be sure that the drone is in perfect condition before a flight.
