Is there any source that covers the basic theory and equations for the control of quadcopters, including incorporating the accelerometers and gyros, the PID control, anything else, etc. I would like to get some information on the basic formulations.
I am very sorry to bother with this question - but - I have searched these files extensively and can't find this info. Found lots of secondary information. Lots of stuff on errors and problems but nothing on the fundamentals. Thank you, Jon

Jon,

 

It looks like you already got some answers on the AeroQuad forum, but for the benefit of anyone else who has the same question:

 

If you understand what "F=ma" means and have some idea about beginning calculus, try my (unfinished) tutorials here:

If you feel up to reading some academic papers, try here:

Roy, what a fantastic resource.  Your write ups are great.  Looking forward to the rest of them.  I hope you keep it up, they are really informative and good.  Jon
