Abstract: Small aerial vehicles are increasing in popularity and the market is rapidlygrowing, especially for the ones called quadrotors or quadcopters due to theirsimplicity. Our project for this bachelor thesis was to build, investigate andfly a quadcopter in Y4 configuration. In this case the aircraft comprises onecentered main rotor for lift and three boom rotors facing upwards for stabilityand control. Light and rigid material were chosen for the construction, anArduino Uno R3 board as flight controller and an open source software tocontrol it. It can be concluded that a similar construction is feasible, and isable to fly. In this specific project stability is the main issue.
