What is a nano quadcopter? Or a nano quadrotor? Or a micro quadcopter?

All these terms – nano quadcopter, micro quadrotor, etc. refer to smaller versions of a category of multi (4) blade flying vehicles called quadcopters. They are usually small enough to fit in the palm of your hand – only a few inches in diameter. One example of a mini/nano quadcopter would be the Walkera QR Ladybird V2. It is highly capable, small, and easy to fly! There are plenty of other nano and micro quadcopters out there, and the terminology has never been accurately classified – therefore, a nano quadcopter could be an inch in diameter, or three inches – as of now at least, there are no clear cut-off points.

Nano quadcopters or micro quadrotors became relatively well-known after a team at the University of Pennsylvania released a video showing their nano quadrotors performing synchronized, autonomous movements.
