The usage of unmanned aerial vehicles has grown drastically because of their ability to operate in dangerous locations while keeping their human operators at a safe distance. In the present work, an attempt has been made to design and fabricate a quadcopter for video surveillance. For continuous video streaming, a miniature wireless camera has been installed in the quadcopter. The camera helps the user to guide the vehicle and also to receive continuous clips of the surveyed location in laptop. Further analysis has been carried out on the frame material to determine better feasible option for carrying out the fabrication. The control system consists of a RC joystick, which sends the input to the multi rotor board using transmitter and receiver. KK 2.1.5 board is used as the brain of the device. Since quadcopter has a better dynamic stability than helicopter, giving the user more comfort of flying, they play a predominant role in different areas for surveillance, military operations, fire sensing and many other complex situations.
