This project elaborated the process on how to build our own quarter by applying a Mechatronic design methodology and concurrently taking into account mechanical, electronic, software and control component design. The results of this investigation include recommendations for proper selection of components such as motors, propellers, batteries and electronic speed controllers so that anyone interested can build his/her own quarter. A quadcopter can achieve vertical flight in a stable manner and be used to monitor or collect data in a specific region such as panoramic view. Technological advances have reduced the cost and increase the perfonnance by using the ArduPilot Mega (APM). The goal of this project is to build, modify, and improve an existing quadcopter kit to obtain a stable flight, monitor the drone by directly, and also perform autocommands such as auto-landing. The arcade software was modified to properly interface the components with the quadcopter kit. The individual components were tested and verified to work properly. Calibration and tuning of the proportional-integral-derivative controller (PID controller) was done to obtain proper stabilization on each axis using custom PID test benches. Most of the goals in this project have been achieved, resulting in a stable and maneuverable quadcopter. For this project, the maximum operated time of Quadcopter is six minutes using 4500mAh Lipo battery and operate time can be increased by using largest battery capacity.
