Abstract

The paper deals with investigation of position stability of quadrocopter in vertical axis. At first, dynamic model of quadrocopter is introduced. In the paper are derived relations for control error in steady state for PD and PID controller. Based on dynamic model the PID controller is designed by optimizing method. Using designed controller the quadrocopter stability in vertical axis was simulated in software Matlab. The results of the simulation are discussed in the conclusion.
