Abstract

This thesis is about modeling and control of miniature rotary-wing flying vehicles, with a special emphasis on quadrotor and coaxial systems. Mathematical models for simulation and nonlinear control approaches are introduced and subsequently applied to commercial aircrafts: the DraganFlyer and the Hummingbird quadrotors, which have been hardware-modified in order to perform experimental autonomous flying. Furthermore, a first-ever approach for modeling commercial micro coaxial mechanism is presented using a flying-toy called the Micro-mosquito.
