Abstract: Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is becoming the future of remote operation, monitoring and delivery system. For a UAV, remote operation requires a versatile control system that can maintain its position without disturbing the task at hand. This paper introduces a hexacopter which is able to pick and place an object by using a robotic arm, while it is flying. The arm is used to grip an object firmly and carry it to the desired destination. It maintains its position on air accurately while performing the pick and place operation. This UAV is able to withstand windflaw to maintain its position. This project can be used for rescuing, transportation of products, first aid supply etcetera.

Keywords: hexacopter; drone; rescue; payload; wireless; object carrying hexacopter.
