Ultralight DelFly Explorer

Dec 17, 2013 1 Comment by

Taking its design cues from microlight indoor RC flyers, this flapping-wing micro air vehicle can fly with complete autonomy in unknown environments! That means this 20-gram aircraft can take off by itself, then use its onboard 4-gram onboard stereo vision system to keep itself at the same altitude and avoid obstacles! Its sensing and processing systems are all onboard, so no pilot or additional computer is in the loop. The Explorer’s battery lasts 9 minutes. Don’t miss the video!

    Can drawings, certain elements or a kit be purchased involving this micro and construct one like this micro?
