Abstract—In this paper we have designed and implemented a complete system of quad rotor stability mechanism. Starting with a Single-axis Implementation of a Quad rotor, we proceeded to create a Quad rotor system inclusive of Quad rotor model, a mathematically modeled and simulated MatLab module along with a LabView graphics interface userface. The purpose of this project is to design and implement a Quad Rotor stability control system that is capable of better stability augmentation and control authority for different load capacities. The magnitude of throttle applied and the corresponding shift in the position of the Quad Rotor from equilibrium must be accurately obtained for better control authority. The project consists of the development of four main areas, the first being the on-board measurement systems including gyroscopes and Accelerometers, the communication systems, the control of the individual rotors and the main processor which pull all these together. The project also required the development of a method of allowing the user to communicate to the Quad Rotor which will be achieved using LabView. In addition to these, a software implementation of the mathematical model of the system will be designed using Matlab. Finally, the stability of the Quad Rotor will be achieved using a customized PID software code.

Index Terms—Graphic user interface, mathematical model, quad rotor, simulation, stability.
