Quads are neat, and nobody can deny their versatility, but I'm really starting to wonder about the "quad-mania" that's struck lately. It's like people are just shoehorning quadcopters into every conceivable area of science, technology, and life in general with the main thrust of the mission being to do ... something... which involves "The Quad".

I have to ask what is the advantage of dropping a quad? I don't see it.

Think of the inconvenience society forces on most people with driver's licenses.

Take your bow and arrow, and shoot arrows randomly from -your- yard into the sky. Think that is as legitimate as flying a toy airplane any old direction at any old time based on a person's self-gratification?
