    Flapping wing micro air vehicles (FWMAVs) have become an important research topic in recent years. Their potential applications, like search, rescue as well as surveillance and reconnaissance, make them attractive solutions with respect to traditional xed or/and rotatory aerial vehicles. In this thesis, our research work. The wing is constructed from polyurethane foam and has a high lift S airfoil in order to decrease stall speed. The gross weight of the vehicle is grams. The wing span is 26 inches and the distance between the wings is inches. For electronics, a micro robotic automation platform (UCB’s GINA) is by: 3. Flapping micro air vehicle (FMAV) is considered to exhibit much better performance at low speeds and small sizes compared to fixed-wing MAVs. To maximize the potential and capabilities of FMAVs also to produce adequate design implications, a new aeroelastic model of a typical flexible FMAV is being developed utilizing Euler-Bernoulli torsion beam and quasi steady aerodynamic Author: Seid H.
