Quadrocopter MapleSim Model - Quadrocopter S-Function - MapleSim Model Gallery


In this model, a quadrocopter is modeled and its flight is visualized. The forces and torques in the body subsystem are created by four rotors, each driven by a DC motor. The lift and drag of each rotor are computed from the angular speed. A controller subsystem is used to maintain the altitude of the quadrocopter at a reference of 50 m. A one second failure is simulated at the 20 second mark in order to create a perturbation, and as can be seen in the simulation, the model stabilizes shortly thereafter.
