The Quad H20 quadcopter is super fast and agile. Also, if by some chance you do crash in water, it floats! How awesome is that? I have yet to find a drone that is able to do this. You can find videos on youtube of this drone chasing down speed boats in Thailand. Nifty!

I’ve been injured when I steered the model into my bare foot and it really does hurt for a while. The Hubsan X4 is a powerful little model and as the video says is quite heavy for this type of Quadcopter.

The Holiday Season is upon us and people are getting their gift shopping under way. And if you are like me, you want to make sure you are getting the gift that is just right. If you have an RC enthusiast in your life, you may be looking at what kind of RC toy to get them. Well look no further than the Syma X1 Quadcopter.

The animated charts work best in the Chrome browser. If you run your mouse along the lines it should show the figures for that date, and also offer some links to news stories that used either Quadcopter or Quadrotor. You can get a country breakdown by clicking on the list icon next to the Regional Interest map. It is clear from all this that the two terms are both still actively in use, but the trend is towards Quadcopter. Istobe (talk) 00:08, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

As for actually flying the sucker… well, a search on YouTube will show you that there are plenty of experienced RC aircraft hobbyists out there who are quite adept at piloting the FPV. My only previous quadcopter experience has been with the DJI Phantom and Phantom 2 Vision, and while they’re certainly more intimidating to fly (because they’re so big and expensive), they’re also a lot easier. This is mainly due to the fact that they both use GPS to hold their position in mid-air.

A lot of people use these sorts of craft just for having fun and flying line of sight like you would with an rc plane or helicopter, but with these quadcopters been so stable they also are becoming a great FPV platform. FPV stands for first person view this is like if you put a camera on your forehead and let people see what you are seeing through a wireless video connection. The same thing applies to FPV with radio aircraft you have a camera on board the quadcopter and a video transmitter that send the image down to your video receiver and you view either through a pair of Video Goggles / Glasses or a monitor or small tv. This is how you get the view as if you are sat in the cockpit of the quadcopter .

Sorry to shout with that big chart, but the small text at the bottom is otherwise not visible. Google has an excellent Explore Trends tool. It allows you to find out what keywords are being typed in by all its users worlwide. The results can be broken down by date, and by region. Here’s what it says in response to a query about Web search interest in Quadcopter and Quadrotor, worldwide over the past 12 months.

The Scout is a vertical take-off and landing VTOL quadcopter requiring no launch equipment. It can hover in a fixed position and weighs 060;lb (460;kg) without payload.

For added value you could purchase the crash pack at the same time as you purchase your Hubsan X4 Quadcopter. A great safety feature the crash pack will give you replacement and bodyshell.

Over time, I think that the basic quad configuration is becoming less and less a default, and because of that, along with a few other reasons, I think this article should slowly be merged with multirotor. To start with, multirotor is the better broad category where all quadcopters will fit in regardless, as well as allowing related content.

It is rather erroneous that this article was entitled “quadrotor”. A simple Google search demonstrates this: “quadrotor” [200,000 ghits] vs. “quadcopter” 1,360,000 ghits. OmniArticleEditor (talk) 16:19, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

The largest use of quadcopters in the USA has been in the field of aerial imagery. Quadcopter UAVs are suitable for this job because of their autonomous nature and huge cost savings. In the USA, the legality of the use of remotely controlled aircraft for commercial purposes has been a matter of debate. The FAA’s stance from 2006 has been that such commercial activity is illegal. However on March 6, 2014, in a court case between Pirker and the FAA, a judge ruled against the FAA’s claims, effectively affirming that model aircraft are not covered by the FAA rules.

From a look at things people decided that WP:GHITS were sufficent to look at for WP:COMMONNAME, when the search for “quadcopter” shows swaems of little radio-control jobs that wanted a hip, marketable name. Looking at Google Books, on the other hand, shows a very different picture, with 2,860 hits for “quadrotor”, but only 546 for “quadcopter” – quite a few of which appear to be novels that use the term as a “hip” and “modern tech” name. A search of nasa.gov shows “quadrotor” being more common 67 to 8, while a search of all .mil domains shows 126 results for “quadrotor” but only three for “quadcopter”. “Quadcopter” may be becoming the more common name, but it is not there yet, and Wikipedia is not supposed to lead trends, but follow them. – The Bushranger One ping only 04:07, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Zero 660 quadcopter is a MAV development of Zero 650 Quadcopter with slightly increased size. As it name implies, the size is increased by 1060;mm to 66060;mm from the original 65060;mm of Zero 650 Quadcopter. In addition to slightly increased size, the other improvement of Zero 660 Quadcopter over the original Zero 650 Quadcopter is that the ground control station of Zero 660 Quadcopter is an android instead of specially dedicated bulky unit used for Zero 650 Quadcopter. Specification:

The Phantom 2 Vision+ allows you to shoot fully stabilized video from the sky. It features a built-in high precision 3-axis camera stabilization system that brings a whole new level of smoothness to your aerial video’s. Thanks to this amazing system your videos will be a lot smoother than with any other quadcopter.

A quadcopter, also called a quadrotor helicopter, quadrotor, is a multirotor helicopter that is lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadcopters are classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is generated by a set of rotors (vertically oriented propellers).

Also the IFLY-4 has software which is easy to use just plug the quadcopter into your pc or laptop and you can tweak the flying characteristics to how you want it. No messing around with code like on the Multiwii boards, No soldering, just Bind and fly.

From the app you will also be able to start and stop video recording, take a snapshot and even tilt the camera up or down. The Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter with Gimbal-Stabilized 14MP, 1080p Camera from DJI is primarily based on the very same air frame as the Phantom two and Phantom two Vision. It attributes a 5,200 mAh battery that can sustain the quadcopter in the air for up to 25 minutes. That GPS lock is what makes the Phantom not only an RC quadcopter, but a drone. Even though completely manual operation is probable, most customers, particularly videographers hoping to get the smoothest attainable shoots, will opt for GPS attitude mode. The camera can take 14 MP, Adobe DNG RAW images, and can record video in 1080p Complete HD at 30 fps or 720p at 60 fps for producing slow motion effects.

It’s been all over the news channels lately and you can find loads of videos on YouTube featuring aerial views from drones. With the release of the DJI Phantom Quadcopter, getting a state-of-an-art camera into the sky has never been easier. The real estate industry is an ideal candidate for the benefits of UAV’S. Showing land or property from high above is a vantage point that adds an unparalleled perspective when marketing a property for sale.

Assuming that you are looking to get into ethereal photography utilizing multirotors there are various choices accessible. You can manufacture your own particular or buy an economically made quadcopter. Building your own particular might be extremely energizing and instructive, however it may be less demanding to get passing by obtaining an economically produced automaton. A portion of the more well-known models are the Blade 350 QX, the Hubsan X4, and the DJI Phantom vision.

MORE DEBUGGING…

quadcopter

A quadcopter, or a quad rotor helicopter, is a multi-rotor helicopter that utilizes four rotor blades for its control and throttle. They are categorized under rotorcrafts as they have four sets of airfoils at all four of their corners, which assist them in their lift. This copter type has two sets of identical clockwise fixed pitch propellers and two sets of similar but counter clockwise rotating propellers. The pilot varies RPMs (or rotations per minute) of the propellers to control the lift and degree of throttle of the quadcopter.

It is not necessary to keep adding that these are drones in the lead para. Most earlier quadcopters were manned aircraft and their use as unmanned aircraft is fully explained in the fourth para in the lead section. Putting in “unmanned quadcopters are also called drones, however this is a more general term that applies also to other non-quadrotor vehicles.” is like putting in “Cars are also called vehicles, however this is a more general term that applies also to other non-car vehicles.” It adds nothing to the article of any value. – Ahunt (talk) 13:22, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

When it comes to aerial photography or videos, things have never been easier. For this type of photography, the use of the latest tech tools is a must to capture that perfect angle and timing. For this, an RC quadcopter with camera is one of the best options. The cost of full sized aircraft for photos/videos is prohibitively expensive in most cases, whether it is for photos for real estate agents, videos for a tourist attraction etc. Quadcopters have reached the point where they are just the right tool for this, economically and technologically. The additional propellers gives additional payload lift and steadiness that ensures a smooth ride. Quadcopters are categorized as multi-rotor-craft, in preference to fixed-wing aircraft, as their lift is produced by a set of rotating narrow-chord airfoils. This of course gives them more maneuverability and precision versus a fixed-wing aircraft type photo shoot. Modern RC technology allows easiness of both control and construction. As a result quadcopter aircraft are frequently utilized as amateur model aircraft photography projects.

The only real bad thing that I’ve found about the quadh20 quadcopter is the price can be up there for some people. I suppose the color could get to you if you didn’t care for yellow, red, or white.

The direction, speed and manner of motion of the quadcopter are controlled by adjusting the RPMs of one or more rotors. This development has led to the elimination of torque induced control, which is a chronic ailment during vertical flights. This smart piece of engineering also gets rid of the tail rotor, which is not particularly effective during lifts. These quadcopter are first of their kind, successful Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) drones, which are capable of vertical lifts.

Over time, I think that the basic quad configuration is becoming less and less a default, and because of that, along with a few other reasons, I think this article should slowly be merged with multirotor.

QUADCOPTER POWERED WISP (WEIRD ILLUMINATED SKY PAINTING)

Quadcopter unmanned aerial vehicles are used for surveillance and reconnaissance by military and law enforcement agencies, as well as search and rescue missions in urban environments. One such example is the Aeryon Scout, created by Canadian company Aeryon Labs, which is a small UAV that can quietly hover in place and use a camera to observe people and objects on the ground. The company claims that the machine played a key role in a drug bust in Central America by providing visual surveillance of a drug trafficker’s compound deep in the jungle (Aeryon won’t reveal the country’s name and other specifics).

DJI Innovations unveiled its GPS-enabled Phantom quadcopter less than a year ago, and since then it has become perhaps the go-to aerial platform for the GoPro HERO actioncam. In April, the company provided us with a sneak peek at the next model in the line, the Phantom 2 Vision. While there weren’t many details available at the time, that’s changed as of today, with the Vision’s official commercial release. Among its new features are improved battery life, a video-stabilizing platform and most significant of all, an included HD video camera that allows for first-person-view via a mobile device.

First of all, you may wonder for what purposes those strange flying machines can be used. Well, the construction industry is very regulated (at least were I live, in the UK), and once every step is completed (for instance, laying proper foundations) the workers have to make sure that it has been irreproachably done. Whilst it may appear relatively easy for small buildings – such as a new house – it becomes much more challenging when it comes to large structures, such as a block of flats. For that purpose, flying a quadcopter over the construction site is quicker than conventional methods, and, most interesting, it records everything, allowing people on the ground to have a clear aerial insight of the entire building that is being constructed.

Quadcopters and other multicopters often can fly autonomously. Many modern flight controllers use software that allows the user to mark “way-points” on a map, to which the quadcopter will fly and perform tasks, such as landing or gaining altitude. Other flight applications include crowd control between several quadcopters where visual data from the device is used to predict where the crowd will move next and in turn direct the quadcopter to the next corresponding waypoint.

As for actually flying the sucker… well, a search on YouTube will show you that there are plenty of experienced RC aircraft hobbyists out there who are quite adept at piloting the FPV. My only previous quadcopter experience has been with the DJI Phantom and Phantom 2 Vision, and while they’re certainly more intimidating to fly (because they’re so big and expensive), they’re also a lot easier. This is mainly due to the fact that they both use GPS to hold their position in mid-air.

Walkera Quadcopters
Walkera is a recognized company which has attained status for producing UAVs. Walkera’s R&D has contributed to frequent designs of reasonable quadcopters that do not require any previous expertise in flying air apparatus. A novice can experience a fun flight with ready to use Walkera quadcopters. They are smart, versatile and perfect for outdoor and indoor use. Every design is equipped with Global positioning system, altitude and compass sensors, rechargeable batteries and alarms. In addition to enjoying the exuberance of flying walkera quadcopters in manual function it’s also possible to set the Gps unit coordinates of a destination and order the Auto-pilot to take the quadcopter there with a flick of a switch.

Quadrotor → Quadcopter – The term “quadcopter” is more frequently used in news and web searches, indicating it is more natural per WP:NAMINGCRITERIA. “Quadcopter” is as recognizable as “quadrotor”, and arguably more precise as it better conveys that the term refers to an aircraft.

When you lose control of it and lose it, the quadcopter will transmit the last known GPS arranges so you can in any case track it down.
A percentage of the burdens of running with a business item rather than building it yourself is that you need to manage the exclusive nature of the item. Case in point, with the DJI Vision, you are restricted to the electric cells that it takes. Yet despite the fact that the expansive 5200 mah electric cells give long continuance flights of up to 25 minutes, they are very costly. Likewise the props are more costly than in the event that you purchased standard props.

DJI is a Chinese technology company headquartered in Shenzhen which produces commercial and recreational UAVs, including the Phantom quadcopter. DJI UAVs are designed for aerial photography and videography.

The frame that is, the main core, that helps in joining other parts of the RC Quadcopter together, is composed of three mechanical components. Along with theses, it has four motors and a propeller one ach motor. The electrical components of the copter are the controller board, battery, ESC- Electronic Speed Control and the remote control. Some of the latest models can also be controlled through your tablet or smart phone. As technology is growing, newer features are getting added to it, like an integrated GPS system or a mounted GoPro Camera.

But quadcopters are also very useful for maintaining old building, especially when it comes to controlling the roof condition of a house. It can thus be an asset for roofing companies: flying this machine over one’s roof can be a far less expensive, much more secure way of inspecting a roof condition. Plus, the pictures or record taken can be used to precisely explain to the customer what is wrong about their roof, where, and what is to be done.
