    Although multirotors on a small scale offer the advantages of having fixed pitch rotors and simpler linkages for rotor actuation, a helicopter with a single rotor will actually have a smaller footprint (Hoffman, 2007; Beckett, 2014). This makes it easier to navigate into difficult landing zones. Small multirotors also generally have a separate motor for each rotor, which would make the
