In our world today quadcopter had become common as one of the simplest unmanned aerial vehicle. In order to accurately control the motion of the quadcopter it is necessary not only to understand the whole process of its motion, but also to know the dynamics of its entire construction. Generally closed control system of aerial vehicle leads to low efficiency by ratio executable task and cost of service, reconfiguration and operation. So in this research opportunity of constructing open source system is justified, operation of the main flight modes is considered, some causes of self-oscillations and divergent oscillations in stabilize attitude controller are studied. Math model of actuating motor system of aerial vehicle that was developed allows us to analyze and predict specific of control system of vehicle for customization for a particular purpose
