Abstract: The purpose of this project is to design and construct a Hexacopter that is able to achieve a pre-requisite launching requirement and provide a releasing mechanical system for a CanSat. It involves the releasing of a CanSat from high altitudes with the help from a Hexacopter. Hexacopter, a type helicopter driven by six motors, acquires lift from six propellers spinning in two different directions. The Hexacopter should able to perform self-stabilization during flight and be equipped with the ability to fly at high altitudes with an additional CanSat weighing around 600g to 700g.This also meant that the Hexacopter must be able carry additional weight and continue to possess good performance flying at high altitudes. In additional, other features such as FPV (first person view) camera, OSD (overlapping screen display), and Launching mechanism will be implemented. The FPV camera will aid as an additional guidance for control as it is able to display the surroundings and possible obstacles to the user. The OSD installed will be able to read crucial data from the GPS. Namely, the location, direction, altitude and also additional information of the Hexacopter. Lastly, the launching mechanism ensures that the CanSat will be ejected out from the Hexacopter successfully
