Quadcopters Set to Change Personal Aviation Forever

Improvements in technology may one day soon allow anyone to fly their own personal quadcopter.

Quadcopters are still so new that many people don't yet know what they are. In the most basic sense, they are flying craft that go aloft courtesy of four rotors instead of just one as is the norm with helicopters. But there's more to it than that, they also utilize fans, instead of traditional rotors. Also, they are only able to fly because each of the fans is individually controlled by a computer-too keep the craft level, the speed of each fan is continuously altered. Presently, quadcopters exist only as research projects or as toys, but that is going to change soon, and when it does, personal flight is likely to change forever.

To date, just one non-military (non-secret) quadcopter has been built and flown that is capable of carrying a human being. Though technically, it's a multicopter rather than a quadcopter, because it has 16 rotors instead of 4. The German team that built the copter highlighted the one component that has kept quadcopters from becoming mainstream-its limited range. Because they rely on multiple rotors, quadcopters consume an enormous amount of power. The quadcopter toys now available are able to fly for less than a half hour between charges. As it stands, the team explained, all quadcopters run off battery power because gas engines are too heavy to be efficient.

But that may change as a team in Britain has built a car that converts to a quadcopter and also runs on gasoline. When being driven, the craft rolls along on oversize wheels-they fold out to become the rotors for the flying car. Of course, the flying car is still in the beginning stages, but prototypes suggest the idea might just work. Another team has built what it calls a "huge" quadcopter that is capable of hauling around human-sized payloads and its rotors are modeled after the fans used in normal home heating units. Also, interestingly, a team at the University of Maryland built a quadcopter bicycle-it was able to carry a man aloft for several seconds.

Perhaps more importantly, a team from the University of Pennsylvania has developed a quadcopter that can be used to help erect tall buildings-essentially replacing cranes. Their purpose is to lift parts and materials into place. That means they have more than enough power to carry a person around, though for now at least, that isn't part of the plan. That's because, the team says, they can't guarantee the safety of a passenger. This is important because it's a clear stepping-stone to greater things. If large size quadcopters become common for commercial applications, they will undergo constant improvements, eventually reaching a point where they become safe enough to transport people. And once that happens, they sky, as they say, is the limit.
