I'm looking at making a predictive maintenance model for a drone (quadcopter mainly but can include others)
I'm wondering what is the most common causes of failure due to "overflying". (not including crashes etc) and how I would quantitatively measure it.
eg. I've read that one mode of failure is rotor malfunction is one of the most common causes of faults and so I would therefore use a vibration sensor (positioned near the rotor?) to measure it.
Are there other common failure modes? And what data can we collect from a drone that would help mitigate those?
Any help much appreciated!!
