    What technology or technologies were most important in enabling the quadcopters that are so popular lately?

    Low cost 3 axis gyros/accelerometers and micro-controllers were primary. LiPo (Lithium-polymer) batteries also contributed greatly. the tens of millions of smart phones being manufactured, along with game consoles and controls, helped drive the massive price reduction and technology gains.
