A quadcopter is an aerial vehicle that uses four rotors for lift, steering, and stabilization. Unlike other aerial vehicles, the quadcopter can achieve vertical flight in a more stable condition. The quadcopter is not affected by the torque issues that a helicopter experiences due to the main rotor. Here Brushless DC motor(BLDC) is been used in order to make the quadcopter fly because, of the advantages of quick acceleration and minimal friction the development of quadcopter can be carried out using BLDC motor (brushless DC motor). In this quadcopter we use FPV camera for capturing the image and videos It’s size is very compact and it is considered to be very a good controller. This technology can be widely used to save lives or prevent harm to others. Some of the application of quadcopter in emergency management such as, search and rescue which would require night vision and infrared optics. Quadcopter is mainly used for surveillance purpose which is done in military. By using lithium polymer battery with certain series (2S or 3S) which will make the quadcopter to fly for a longer period.
