Gyroscope‐based control and stabilization of unmanned aerial mini‐vehicle (mini‐UAV)
This work discusses the use of a mini gyroscope with three degrees of freedom to control or remote control an unmanned aerial mini‐vehicle (mini‐UAV). The gyroscope determines the reference system for the navigation of the UAV. The algorithm of the gyroscope control moments and the law of deflection of the UAV surface control are presented. The mini autopilot plays a role of a system that makes the longitudinal line coincide with the gyroscope axis. The structure and durability aspects of the remote and programmed navigation are considered.
