A quadcopter, or multirotor, drone, or quadrotor, is a simple flying mechanical vehicle that has four arms, and in each arm there is a motor attached. Two of the rotors turn clockwise, while the other two turn counter clockwise. Quadcopters are aerodynamically unstable, and require a flight computer to convert your input commands into commands that change the RPMs of the propellers to produce the desired motion.

Quadcopters are the most common drones and can be found in any size. From small toys to sophisticated entry-level models to professionally used quadcopters.

Quadcopters are an economical way to introduce yourself to the world of remote control aerial vehicles. They are fun to fly, and with some practice and patience anyone can learn how to fly a quadcopter.
