What is a quadcopter
Quadcopter, also called a quadrotor helicopter, drones or 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.
Quadcopter applications include but not limited to Military and law enforcement, photography, sports and journalism. In 2014 The Guardian reported that major media outlets have started to put serious effort into exploring the use of drones for reporting and verifying news on events that include floods, protests, and wars.
The most famous drones are:
- Dji PHANTOM 4
- GoPro Karma
