The Quadrocopter (from the Latin term “quad” for four) is an alternative helicopter with a large envelope of applications. This piece of technology not only has a high degree of maneuverability but is also one of the few helicopter models that have true four-wheel-drive. Let’s examine the many features of the Quadrocopter.
The best definition of this alternative helicopter would be “a four-wheeled airplane with four rotor blades.” The aircraft incorporates what could be considered the “equivalent” of four airplanes, in terms of size and weight.
Higher Levels Of Stability
The additional thrust helps to provide a lot of higher levels of stability and even better ride quality, in most circumstances. Think of what you would do if you were riding on a bicycle with a two-wheeled roller chain. While you’d be able to move in any direction while going forward or backward. You wouldn’t be able to do much else.
The propeller is the primary means of propulsion. There are three primary propellers in the Quadrocopter.
Move Quickly- Best Features
However, just because the Quadrocopter can move very quickly does not mean that the ride is going to be dull or boring. The natural fluttering motion of the two small rotors combined with the excellent aerodynamics of the Quadrocopter results in a smooth ride on all sorts of surfaces.
Each blade, like the blades on a bicycle, can be flipped up and down or you can even rotate them from different angles. This allows the rider to maneuver at different angles from the center of the rotor system. While still keeping the tires connected to the ground.
While the propellers may provide high angles of attack, the blades themselves are very aerodynamic and will not make the helicopter too hard to fly. The best way to describe this helicopter is a cross between the high speeds of a bicycle and the maneuverability of a helicopter.
Ability To Change- Best Features
One of the most unique and important features of the Quadrocopter is the ability to change between a standard model and a four-rotor multi-rotor aircraft. This allows you to explore various applications for the Quadrocopter. While still being able to use the four-rotor configuration for emergencies. The four-rotor configuration can allow you to take off and land vertically or upside down with a broad array of configurations.
When you start using the Quadrocopter, you’ll discover that it can be controlled using a standard RC transmitter. Moreover, by connecting the Quadrocopter to your computer via a USB connection. Both options give you full control over the helicopter. The most basic control scheme is by using the transmitter. However, there are some advanced features that need to be purchased.
Another way to get some advanced features is to purchase the Flight Simulator. This enables you to control the throttle, the brakes, and the rudder with the touch of a button. It’s a great way to experience the thrill of flying an aircraft before you buy it.
When you fly the Quadrocopter for the first time, there are a few things that you need to watch out for. First, when the throttle is opened, you should be able to maintain a steady and gradual pitch during the flight. Second, when you’re on a slope, be sure to keep the noise level and use the “Auto-G” feature. So that the helicopter will maintain its level and won’t tilt.
