Low-cost quadcopters have created new opportunities for the exploration of designing, simulating, and implementing real-time control systems. Here, the Rolling Spider minidrone is exploited in order to demonstrate a powerful workflow usable by most complex embedded applications requiring advanced control design. A review of the evolution and educational impact the Rolling Spider minidrone is given. Finally, a simple control scheme that can be deployed and evaluated in real-time is developed and evaluated.
