This thesis work wants to investigate in how complex the mathematical model of a multi-rotor drone has to be, in order to simulate three different flight conditions: impulsive responses, vertical and horizontal flight. This is done by exploiting a technique called inverse simulation. Also the two autopilot used to control the model has been designed to be as close as possible to the real one. The results obtained with Simulink are then compared with the telemetry data collected during the real flight by the Pixhawk flight controller.
