Revision as of 19:27, 29 March 2009

This is an attempt at comparing all currently known/available projects trying to build DIY, open-source or commercial quadrocopters (sometimes also referred to as UAVs, quadrotors, or multicopters).

Please keep the lists sorted alphabetically, first by vendor name (if any), then by project/UAV name.
