Quadrotor UAV Simulation Modeling using X-Plane Simulation Software
This paper discusses the development of a UAV model, especially a quadrotor, for simulation purpose. The UAV
simulation model was based from Parrot Bebop 2 quadcopter and will be built by using X-Plane’s Plane Maker software. This
simulation model was made to help understand the design and flight characteristic of the UAV model. However, several
difficulties were met during the development of the simulation model as a cause of the software’s limitations, and some
compromises were made. This might have resulted in the simulation not having a highly accurate model, thus further research
on this topic should be done in having a more accurate model to simulate the flight and operating conditions of the UAV.
