This study includes altitude stabilization, hovering control any desired position and attitude control of quadrotor. Classically PD controller derived and applied to this system. Inverse dynamic control, feedback linearization control and sliding mode control methods have used to derive as nonlinear controllers. Linear and nonlinear control techniques applied to attitude control of this vehicle. Derived control methods have been performed using computer simulations and compared the results according to this study objective.
