Abstract: Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) aircrafts have been an active area of research in recent years. With the advent of low-cost Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMs) sensors, it has become viable to construct models of VTOL aircrafts for controller design and comparison. Leveraging the strengths of the Renesas H8S/2378 16-bit Microcontroller, a Quadrotor system has been designed and implemented.This report focuses on: . Quadrotor Hardware Design and Modelling: A detailed description of the hardware mechanics and physical construction of the Quadrotor. . Hardware Electrical Specifications and Considerations: An in depth documentation of the electrical hardware used and an implementation of the hardware sensor board that has been designed and built.  Software Controller System and Implementation: The development of a Mathematical Model of the Quadrotor in MatLab has been accomplished. This model is used to test the developed PID Control System. Subsequently, an implementation of the PID Control System is done for the Renesas H8S/2378 MCU, which is used to power the Quadrotor.
