Analysis, Design and Implementation of Quadcopter Control System
Abstract— Quadcopters have generated considerable interest in both the control community due to
their complex dynamics and military because of their advantages over regular aerial vehicles. This
paper presents the analysis and design of differential equations of the quadcopter dynamics. The
behaviour of the dynamic model is examined by simulating the flight of the quadcopter. Stabilization
of the quadcopter is conducted by utilizing a PID controller. The PID controller is a simple control
method which is easy to implement as the control method of the quadcopter. A simple control method
is developed to control the trajectory and altitude of the flight.The proposed dynamical model which
comprises gyroscopic effects and its control strategies can be source for future works.
