In the last few decades, with the revolution of availability of low-cost microelectronics, which allow fast and complex computations to be performed on board, there has been increasing attention to aerial vehicles, especially rotary-wing vehicles. This is because of their ability to vertically takeoff and land (VTOL), which make them appropriate for urban environments where no runways are needed. Quadrotors took considerable attention in research and development due to their symmetric body, which makes them simpler to model and control compared to other configurations.
