Guidance model for multirotor UAVs

A `multirotor`

object represents a reduced-order guidance model
for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The model approximates the behavior of a closed-loop
system consisting of an autopilot controller and a multirotor kinematic model for 3-D
motion.

For fixed-wing UAVs, see `fixedwing`

.

`model = multirotor`

creates a multirotor motion model with
`double`

precision values for inputs, outputs, and configuration parameters
of the guidance model.

`model = multirotor(DataType)`

specifies the data type precision
(`DataType`

property) for the inputs, outputs, and configurations
parameters of the guidance model.
