BeagleBone Blue and robots that can fly

You've now built robots that can move around on a wheeled structure, robots that can have legs, and robots that can sail. You can also build robots that can fly, relying on the BeagleBone blue to control their flight. There are several possible ways to incorporate the BeagleBone into a flying robotic project, but perhaps the most straightforward is to add it to a quadcopter project.

Quadcopters are a unique subset of flying platforms that have become very popular in the last few years. They utilize the same vertical lift concept as helicopters; however, they employ not one but four motor or propeller combinations to provide an enhanced level of stability. Here is a picture of just such a platform:
