HI @Dante_Anderlich,

As far as I know, in drones, usually brushless motors are used.

Brushless motors have all the characteristics required for great drone design: high efficiency, wide speed ranges and overall high speed-torque capabilities . They are also relatively affordable and require comparatively less maintenance.

Now to run them, you need an ESC.

Not sure how easy is L293N to use for this.

I’ve found these topics:

tanks again my friend once again a help thanks :grinning:
