Introduction to Autopilot

Autopilot is an adjustment device that automatically controls the trajectory of an aircraft according to technical requirements. Its role is mainly to maintain the attitude of the aircraft and assist the pilot in maneuvering the aircraft. For drones, it will cooperate with other navigation equipment to complete prescribed flight missions. The autopilot on the missile plays the role of stabilizing the missile attitude, so it is called the missile attitude control system. The autopilot pilots the aircraft by mimicking the actions of the pilot. It consists of sensitive components, computers and servos. When the aircraft deviates from the original attitude, the sensing element detects the change, the computer calculates the correction rudder offset, and the servo mechanism controls the rudder surface to the desired position.
