"A quadrotor, also called a quadrotor helicopter or quadrocopter, is an aircraft that is lifted and propelled by four rotors."

I've been flying model helicopter on/off for a few years and have now started to build a Quadcopter. As this is my first quadcopter I'm going to try and detail as much as I can here, some of this is likely just to be a bunch of random notes and not make a lot of sense to any one else, but as always I'm happy to explain if you can catch me at hackspace. --'RepRap' Matt 15:33, 15 August 2011 (BST)
