Russian scientists seek patent for drone-ready 3D printed brushless motor

Scientists and engineers from the Polytechnic Institute of South Ural State University have used 3D printing to develop a reliable brushless electric motor for aerospace equipment. The motor could be used in drones and quadcopters. (Image: Oleg Igoshin) With consumer drone shipments expected to hit the 13 million mark in 2018, there is currently a big market opportunity for companies to come up with new components for unmanned aerial vehicles of all varieties. Unsurprisingly, one of a drone’s most critical features is its brushless motor, which uses a system of permanent magnets on its rotor (the rotating part) and […]
