Recently, research and interests in pilotless and radio-controlled quadcopters have increased due to military, hobby, and air-photo applications. However, quadcopters are fragile and can very easily to break when they crash. Therefore, it is necessary to create a protective device such that these devices can protect the main board, motor, and propellers from outside impacts. In this paper, a protective device for a quadcopter is designed in the form of a circle to disperse shock. Also, a dropping and impact simulation was performed to verify that the quadcopter can be efficiently protected when using the proposed device, created with the commercial finite element software Solidworks.
