The signal coverage area is considered a controversial point that is solved and discussed wisely in this paper. The designers usually concentrate only on satisfying the controllability of the quadcopter module without discussing the coverage range between the transmitter and the receiver. This paper shows a smart design method of a low-cost quadcopter device controlled by a GPS. Moreover, the modern control system was designed to control the plane by creating an integration between the control unit and the PID system, which allowed the system to reach stability very fast and the peak overshoot was eliminated. The control system of the quadcopter calibrates the Pitch, Roll, Twist, which located on x,y,z axes respectively depending on the altitude sensor. Under the GPS act, the entire frame will be allocated in the covered area which was specified by 500 meters. This specification keeps the quadcopter in the required range and the tipping down accidents will be unexpected. Finally, this work was completed based on the Arduino IDE C++ compiler and Matlab program that emphasizes the theoretical results.
