EPFL’s Raptor-inspired Drone with Feathered Wings & Tail

Robotic Gizmos

Here is a raptor-inspired drone with morphing wing and tail that can achieve superior flight agility. According to EPFL engineers, this drone can adjust the shape of its wing and tail with artificial feathers to change direction fast, fly slower without falling to the ground, and reduce air resistance when flying fast.

This drone uses a propeller for forward movement instead of flapping its wings for better efficiency. The above video shows it in action.
