What is a Quadcopter?

What is a Quadcopter?

You may have heard the terms "quadcopter" and "drones" being thrown around an awful lot, so it may be confusing when someone refers something you thought was a drone as a quadcopter. Worry no more, because we are here to clear things up for you: quadcopters are drones with four rotors, hence the "quad" in quadcopter.

Quadcopters are, according to Google, "unmanned helicopters having four rotors", but here at Hobbytron they’re just known as "drones with, well, four rotors." We understand why this may be confusing though-some quadcopters might look like a four-leaved clover like this UDi UFO quadcopter.

And some quadcopters might look like any other drone, but with just four rotors placed further apart from each other, like the World Tech Toys Supernova.

There are, of course, different kinds of quadcopters, just as there are different kinds of drones for sale- you have the camera quadcopters, the personal quadcopters and even the mini quadcopters. Just because quadcopters have four rotors, doesn’t make it completely different from a drone.
