The purpose of this project is to design a new uninhabited aerial vehicle (UAV) that employs multiple small rotors. This has the potential to provide a revolutionary UAV design concept that can fly in any direction while handling large disturbances, such as significant wind gusts. Both analytical and hardware design opportunities are possible for the new UAV design work.
