There are two types of lightning which are the cloud to ground and cloud to cloud. Currently, studies in cloud to cloud are based from image taken from ground. The idea is to build a device which can capture lightning image from a closer distance to better understand the characteristic of cloud to cloud lightning. This study can be a breakthrough in learning the behavior of the lightning and in future harness the lightning power for unlimited source of energy. The approach of this study is to build an aerial drone which could fly as close as possible, to the desired lightning that will be studied. The project covers the building of the aerial drone which will be responsible to carry an image capturing system that would be cover by another researcher. It is important to build an aerial drone which is capable of flying at a distance while maintaining the stability during flight time. This project starts from the building of its hardware which cover the body frame, propulsion system, power managing system, and communication system. Then, the control system for the aerial drone is coded using an Arduino based software which provide the needed stability and control by manipulating the sensors and radio control. Both hardware and software where tested in a series of experiment to study the aerial drone behavior during flight time. After the experiment, a clear conclusion can be made based on the results we obtain from the experiments.
