Historically, humans have aspired to fly like birds. However, a human carrying ornithopter that can hover by flapping wings doesnÂ’t exist in today's reality. This motivated our MQP team to address feasibility of heavy weight biologically inspired hovering robot. In this project, we report on the aerodynamics of flapping wing flight through a means of an analytical model and numerical simulation, and validated these findings through physical experiments.
