Why the quad-rotor configuration has not been adopted as an actual aircraft?

Quadrotor configuration I think is the most common configuration for drones. Why has it not been made into a full-size production aircraft? I think that it could be better than helicopters as it does not need a tail.

Because it is extreme complex to make new mancarrying aircraft.

As a matter of fact, people started to make the design the moment it appeared feasible.

The boeing dudes could´t make the undercarriage of a stupid bus longer in 30 years, so you kind need to allow some time for a total new concept. (On top of that the helicopter-market is an? order of magnitude smaller than said Busbussines).
