Quad rotor vehicles are gaining prominence as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) owing to their simplicity in construction and ease of maintenance. They are being widely developed for applications relating to reconnaissance, security, mapping of terrains and buildings, etc. The control of the quad rotor is a complex problem. As a precursor to developing a model based design, the simulation of the mathematical model of the quad rotor is implemented. This will facilitate easier implementation of the model based design using Matlab Simulink. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
