This research focused on the development of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) of a dodecacopter system. The dodecacopter is controlled through a Pixhawk 2.4.8 firmware�based flight controller. The communication between the dodecacopter and flight controller is connected through wireless communication system. The dodecacopter is well equipped with latest technology from Pixhawk flight controller for efficient and smooth controlling system. The dodecacopter balancing system is using the technology of barometer MS5611 and magnetometer IST8310 sensors. The developed dodecacopter is equipped with 12 Tarot 4006 brushless motors to increase the payload capability. Based on the results, the experiment shows that the dodecacopter can hover and maintain its position with optimum stability. Observation shows that the dodecacopter performances can be increased by using high-powered motors, lighter batteries.
