Unmanned Aeronautical Vehicle, Drone, Flight Controller and Arduino.


The aim of this study was to develop a flight developer for an unmanned aeronautical vehicle (UAV) with copyright technology. The project takes into account several aspects of Mechanical Engineering, as well as knowledge of aircraft dynamics, remote control, sensing and electronics, composing a multidisciplinary work of Electronics, Mechatronics and Aeronautical Engineering. In this project, the UAV is divided into its fundamental components: structure/base , engines, propellers, flight controllers, batteries, sensors and radio, each one being studied and specified for the integration of a full system. Simulation tools and calculation softwares are used to estimate the main features of the final product. We presume that this article serves as a reference for a drone project in general and a guide to the physical production of such a drone, from the initial design with specifications to the selection and integration of components for future work and research projects, becoming a valuable tool of great added value.
