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

There are also tri copters (three blades), hexacopters (six blade), and octocopters (eight blades). The multirotors with a high number of blades are typically larger and designed to carry a heavier payload. For example, Amazon’s recent announcement about using unmanned aerial vehicles to deliver packages shows the company utilizing octocopters, given their increased range, stability, and ability to carry moderate amounts of weight.


During SAW R&D Quadcopter Design Workshop, participants get an opportunity to design, fabricate and test their quadcopter. Such method of application oriented training ensures participants understand the principles of aerodynamics, flight dynamics, aero structures and avionics involved in quadcopter design through its practical implementations. Participants will go through the following sessions to fabricate a quadcopter of their own.
