In this paper the modeling and PID switching control of a quadcopter with X8 configuration is proposed. The main objective is to design and implement a model of the quadcopter in Simulink®, its simulation and control in a virtual reality world using Simulink3D®. It is also part of the work to design and implement a supervisor for the system. The main contributions are the modeling of a X8 architecture and a fault tolerant control approach. In order to show the performance, simulation results with the model of a quadcopter X8 are presented.
