Unmanned Aerial Vehicle in short is UAV and it is widely recognized and known to the public. It becomes more and more importance in military and civil applications. UAV can replace human pilot but ground control or even machine control and this help to reduce the danger to the human body for different missions. Nowadays, there is a rapid increase in a number of people who take part of building their own UAV, formally known as drone or flying robot. There are two main classifications for UAV, which is semi-autonomous and fully autonomous. The purpose of this report is to present the design and the construction detail of UAVs. In this report, both hardware and software specification will mention and how it is assembly, calibration and test. This quad-copter was able to complete the mission that had been set by the competition committees. This quad-copter had been performing in the Singapore Amazing Flying Machine Competition 2016 and it had finished all the missions. One of the quad-copters had achieved the 2nd Best Platform Award and 3rd Championship Award in the Category D1 (Semi-Autonomous Group).
