The development of quadrotor unmanned aerial vehicles -UAVs-in potential civil applications is conditioned by the embedded elements such as removable payload, miniature actuators, sensors and power storage. As simple as the structure of the quarotor is, the dynamic behavior is complex. The paper details a model of a quadrotor which considers the effects of the location of the center of gravity and the gyroscopic torques due to the derivative of the speed propellers. A simple control law in

Time domain constraints and parameters which belong to a polytope define the basis of the regulator synthesis. The relevance of the study is fulfilled thanks to numerical simulations and experimental plateform is presented.
