The paper presents laboratory model of unmanned aerial vehicle. The plant design, construction and building was a part of a project in the course on autonomous mechatronic systems. The goal was to make an exercise in mechatronics, resulting in plants which could be used in other project or classes, using the same hardware as common UAVs.


Control education using laboratory equipment Balance issues of theoretical-versus-practical training Teaching curricula developments for control and other engineers
