It is generally recognized that operator error and unairworthy aircraft are the principle factor in sUAS (drone) system failures and accidents. But looking just at the hardware, are there published studies on the aircraft systems components which cause the greatest number of system failures?

For example, batteries. Or motors.

Has anyone done any kind of a large scale study of failures and published it?
