The multicopter is Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) that may have many applications. As we are developing gradually from a century old design, modern multicopters are turning into small and agile vehicles. A number of multicopter configurations were studied for this project and finally quad rotor configuration was selected. Our present focus is on developing a suitable design configuration for a quadcopter. The design was started by the approximate load the quad copter should carry and weight of each component. Based on this weight of the quadcopter, the appropriate motors and corresponding electronic components were selected. The selection of components for the structure was based on weight, forces acting on them, mechanical properties and cost. First person view (FPV) was incorporated into the system to carry to surveillance with the help of IP camera. Since this quadcopter is specially designed an unconventional landing gear.
