Abstract

The objective of this MQP is to design, test, and assess the feasibility of a flapping-wing remote controlled micro air vehicle (MAV). The group designed an MAV with a wingspan and total length of under one foot and a weight of under one ounce, similar to existing projects. The group then manufactured, assembled, and performed several tests on a prototype of the MAV. Finally, the group proposed design improvements and recommendations for future work at WPI.
