Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Control Algorithms, PID Operation Logic and P Value

Unfortunately, the flight of rotary-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles cannot be explained as simply as four propellers create a downward thrust, contrary to popular belief. There are many difficulties to be overcome in order for such a device to be just suspended in the air without tipping over. In this article, an introduction will be made about how PID controllers, which are widely used in automatic control of systems, work and information about how P value works will be given.

As mentioned in the introduction, keeping Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in balance while in the air is possible with a very complex control algorithm. Let’s try to explain the situation in a somewhat simplified way. For example, let’s say our vehicle is a planar vehicle with two propeller-engine twins, not four.
