Formally posed in 1965, the problem of optimal attitude estimation from vector measurements has been a hot topic of research in the aerospace community. This paper provides a survey of open source quadrotor helicopter autopilots that demonstrates that the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle community has largely ignored the optimal attitude estimation work to date. Furthermore, the effectiveness of a quadrotor helicopter autopilot utilizing attitude estimates from optimal attitude estimation techniques is… Expand
