Quadrotor is one of rotary wing UAV types which is able to perform a hover position. In order to take off, landing, and hover, it needs controllers. Conventional controllers have been widely applied in quadrotor, yet they have drawbacks namely overshoot. This paper presents attitude and altitude control algorithm in order to obtain a response as quadrotor hovered optimally within minimum overshoot, rise time, and settling time. The algorithm used is Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) algorithm with Mamdani method. By using the algorithm, the quadrotor is able to hover with minimum overshoot and maximum rise time. The advantage of the algorithm is that it does not require linearization model of the quadrotor.
