Abstract/Summary

This study focuses on the implementation of a remote-controlled quadrotor that is designed with solar recharging and emergency landing capabilities. The duration of its flight is prolonged by 25% of its original flight time with the use of a power switching circuit. The power switching circuit switches two battery packs during flight. One of the battery packs will be used by the quadrotor, the other will be recharged by solar energy. When the first battery reaches 11.1 Volts, the second battery will be switched in and will allow the first battery to be recharged. This will switch alternately until both batteries are below 11.1V. This will prolong the flight duration of the quadrotor.
