DelFly

In the DelFly project, we design and study autonomous flapping wing MAVs. Our approach is to always work with flying platforms that can carry payload such as a camera. On the one hand, we work toward ever more autonomous flapping wing MAVs that can be used for actual applications, ranging from search-and-rescue to entertainment. On […]
