Abstract Quadrotors ying close to the ground experience a force resisting their descent known as ground effect. In this paper, we use ground effect to provide passive position stability of a quadrotor. We analyse stability of a quadrotor with canted rotors ying in a sloped ground channel. Flying a 200 g quadrotor in a sloped channel, we demonstrate position keeping and identify the most effective conguration, combining low settling time, low overshoot and fast response.
