Chapter 3 presents a systematic methodology for constructing a fully functional unmanned rotorcraft system, which involves key steps such as virtual design environment selection, selection of hardware components, design and integration of the avionic system, and performance and reliability evaluation. A Raptor 90 SE-based UAV, named SheLion, a twin of HeLion, but with an additional onboard vision system, is used to illustrate the design procedure throughout the entire chapter.
