The main goal of the research is to design a low-cost, performing quadrotor unmaned aerial vehicle (UAV) system. Because of low cost limits, the performance must be ensured by other ways. The present proposal is a quaternion-based estimator used in the control loop. In order to make the proposed solution easy to be reproduced by the reader, step-by-step instructions are given, including component choices, design, and implementation. Throughout the article, detailed description of the system model is given. The efficacy of the suggested quaternion-based predictive control is evaluated by extended experimental results.
