A control algorithm of tri-rotor aircraft using PID control and the effect of it in a tilt tri-rotor aircraft is proposed and observed in this paper.In the development of the control algorithm, a mathematical model consisting variables from three motors used and its tilting mechanism is obtained and referred to. A significant improvement is observed when the control algorithm is applied to the system in which the pitch overshoot is greatly reduced and approach to a constant zero.Tilt TriRotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (TRUAV) is an aircraft that has three motors and does not allow pilot intervention in the management of the flight. There exist situations where the surrounding environment is not appropriate or even dangerous to a human being. Examples of such case is a war zone area, steep terrains, explosive area, or even during armed attacks.
