RC Quadcopters

Within the late 2000s, advances in electronics permitted producing cheap lightweight flight controllers, accelerometers (IMU), gps and cameras. This led to an immediate proliferation of small, cheap consumer quadcopters as well as other multi rotor designs. Quadcopter designs also grew to become popular in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or drone) research. Using their small size and maneuverability, these Remote Control quadcopters can be flown indoors as well as outdoors.
