Festo BionicOpter | Inspired by the dragon-fly
Small, lightweight, and highly agile. This complex flying robot was developed utilising innovative cutting edge technology combining intelligent flight control, extreme lightweight construction (185 grams) and functionality – all integrated into the smallest of space
With a central electric motor and 8 servo motors the BionicOpter is able to control 13 grades of freedom in flight. The agile flight behaviour is achieved by precisely controlling the beat frequency, amplitude adjustment and active wing twisting simultaneously.
