Carbon Fiber
Lighter and stronger than equal size and shape of all other materials, most expensive, and can block radio signals
Fiber reinforced plastic where the reinforcement fiber is specifically glass fiber, strong and lightweight and can form into any shape
Due to the weight and the ability to shape very useful for UAS, however may lack needed strength
Frame Size
Denoted by the horizontal width of the frame assembly, including its arms
A variation of fiberglass is used as a less expensive option than carbon fiber, available in sheets, does not block radio signals
A substance that is intended to be used for certain applications
Has great strength but can weigh a great deal as well; aluminum is commonly used and can be formed into any shape
Also called materials science is an interdisciplinary subject, spanning the physics and chemistry of matter, engineering applications and industrial manufacturing processes
Synthetic material made from a wide range of organic polymers such as polyethylene, PVC, or nylon; can be molded into any shape
Stress-Strain Curve
The relationship between the stress and strain that a particular material displays
The oscillating, reciprocating, or other periodic motion of a rigid or elastic body or medium forced from a position or state of equilibrium
Cheapest option and is widely available to most people, the type of wood used can range from balsa, poplar, and pine
Desoldering Pump
Used to remove solder from a board or anyplace that you need to remove solder
Needle Nose Pliers
Are both cutting and holding pliers used by artisans, jewelry designers, electricians, network engineers and other tradesmen to bend, re-position and cut wire.
Rosin Core
Combines a metal alloy with a pitch-like organic compound; together, the substances melt easily and adhere well to copper and other metals, creating a strong bond that conducts electricity
A low-melting alloy, especially one based on lead and tin or (for higher temperatures) on brass or silver, used for joining less fusible metals
Solder Wick
One time use method to remove solder by wicking up solder into brad
Process in which two or more items (usually metal) are joined together by melting and putting a filler metal (solder) into the joint
Soldering Iron
Supplies heat to melt solder so that it can flow into the joint between two workpieces, composed of a heated metal tip and an insulated handle
The application of a thin layer of soft solder to the ends of wires before soldering them
Wire Cutters
Intended for the cutting of wire (they are generally not used to grab or turn anything)
Wire Strippers
A pair of opposing blades much like scissors or wire cutters with the addition of a center notch making it easier to cut the insulation without cutting the wire
