Building and controlling a Quadrotor

Based on Rafael's previous experience in (trying to) building a functional quadrotor we decided to retake the project.

This project is kindly hosted on PUC-Rio, LED Lab at group GIGA.

Definition

From wikipedia:

A quadrotor, also called a quadrotor helicopter or quadrocopter, is an aircraft that is lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadrotors are classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is derived from four rotors. They can also be classified as helicopters, though unlike standard helicopters, quadrotors use fixed-pitch blades, whose rotor pitch does not vary as the blades rotate. Control of vehicle motion can be achieved by varying the relative speed of each rotor to change the thrust and torque produced by each."
