Abstract: This paper presents an autopilot system for a Radio Controlled (RC) helicopter, in a simulation environment. The controller is designed using Fuzzy Logic in order to achieve simplicity and cost effectiveness. The system controls the helicopter from takeoff to landing, allowing the craft to reach any position and hover stably with a defined yaw attitude at the request of the user. The Fuzzy Inference Systems (FIS) in use were able to allow for these operations with more than satisfactory results, even in simulated winds.
