Application driven multirotor UAV design becomes an emerging challenge as missions' needs require improved performance. In this paper, a multifunctional identification and control testbed for UAV actuators is introduced. Brushless controllers, motors and propeller pairs need to be chosen precisely to achieve optimal performance. Accurate identification of intrinsic parameters of those actuators and their comparison allow the engineer to decide between choosing existing parts or designing their own. Furthermore, we introduce a real-time MATLAB interface that allows to reduce implementation time when developing brushless motors control algorithms.
