Abstract: A quadcopter is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) which changes its position and orientation by four rotating blades. Due to its size and manoeuvrability, the quadcopter has several uses. Some of which include natural disaster management, weather monitoring, forest fire detection, emergency search and rescue, security, surveillance, agriculture and academic teaching such as control engineering. Moreover, in the recent decades, the use of quadcopters in various fields have vastly increased. This is due to the significant advancements in technologies such as microcontrollers, motors and sensors. Regardless of these uses and benefits of the quadcopter, a major cause of concern for current researchers is to obtain stability of quadcopters subjected to external disturbances (unknown inputs) to the system.
