In this paper, we propose a the image-based automatic flight control system for the mini drone. Automatic flight system with a camera on the ceiling and markers on the floor and landing position is designed in an indoor environment. Images from the ceiling camera is used not only to recognize the makers and landing position but also to track the drone motion. PC sever identifies the location of the drone and sends control commands to the mini drone. Flight controller of the mini drone is designed using state-machine algorithm, PID control and way-point position control method. From the, The proposed automatic flight control system is verified through the experiments of the mini drone. We see that known makers in environment are recognized and the drone can follows the trajectories with the specific ㄱ, ㄷ and ㅁ shapes. Also, experimental results show that the drone can approach and correctly land on the target positions which are set at different height.
