Insect flight dynamics and control

Abstract:

Motivated by recent interest in developing flapping wing micro-air vehicles (MAVs) capable of emulating the flight performance of insects, we describe the state of the art in our understanding of insect flight dynamics. We first outline some general principles of flapping flight dynamics, before presenting a framework for modelling insect flight dynamics using empirical data from real insects. Using wind tunnel and rotary balance measurements to measure time-invariant stability/control deriva...
