The popularity of the multirotor or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is rapidly growing in the field of aerial robotics. In fact, multirotor has now become a standard platform for robotics research worldwide and it has been increasingly used for various constructive purposes across several sectors. Traffic congestion in urban areas has caused a longer time to deliver medical aid kits to the accident sites. Many patients in remote areas with limited road access will need to travel further and consequently take a longer time to reach healthcare centers for their medical needs. In view of this situation, medical drones have the potential to resolve these problems. However, Malaysia has limited regulations and studies regarding the transportation of medical aid kits using multirotors. This study is conducted to develop a multirotor for deployment of medical aid kits. The proposed multirotor is a hexarotor, equipped with Pixhawk flight controller and payload release mechanism, known as NAMTOR 3. From the preliminary flight tests to assess the performance of NAMTOR 3, it has been found that NAMTOR 3 is stable during flight and ready for deployment.
