Autonomous outdoor quad-rotor helicopters increasingly attract the attention of potential researchers. Several structures and configurations have been developed to allow 3D movements. The quadrotor helicopter is made of a rigid cross frame equipped with four rotors. The autonomous quad-rotor architecture has been chosen for this research for its low dimension, good manoeuvrability, simple mechanics and payload capability. This article presents the modelling, control and navigation of an autonomous outdoor quad-rotor helicopter.
