With the rise of new and innovative Urban Air Mobility solutions, there also arises a need to integrate these into the existing airspace. Current airspace users include conventional civil, commercial and general aviation, military air users, police and emergency services as well as a plethora of avian life. Planned additions to the airspace are...

Tailless flapping wing micro aerial vehicles (FMWAVs) are known for their light weight and agility. However, given the fact that these FWMAVs have been developed only recently, their flight dynamics have not yet been fully explained. In this paper we develop grey-box models for the time-averaged longitudinal dynamics of a tailless FWMAV ...

Despite significant interest in tailless flapping-wing micro aerial vehicle designs, tailed configurations are often favoured, as they offer many benefits, such as static stability and a simpler control strategy, separating wing and tail control. However, the tail aerodynamics are highly complex due to the interaction between the unsteady...

The demand for always smaller, more manoeuvrable and versatile unmanned aerial vehicles cannot be met with conventional manned flight approaches. This has led engineers to seek inspiration in nature, giving rise to the bio-inspired flapping-wing micro aerial vehicle (FWMAV). FWMAVs achieve a remarkable flight performance at small scales, however...

Flight control of Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles is challenging, because of their complex dynamics and variability due to manufacturing inconsistencies. Machine Learning algorithms can be used to tackle these challenges. A Policy Gradient algorithm is used to tune the gains of a Proportional-Integral controller using Reinforcement Learning. A...

Biologically-inspired flapping-wing micro aerial vehicles are characterised by nonlinear, unsteady aerodynamics and complex dynamics, both highly challenging to model. To take full advantage of the flight capabilities of such vehicles, it is necessary to obtain insight into their dynamics in the different flyable conditions, and to provide...

The effects of the horizontal tail surface on the longitudinal dynamics of an or- nithopter were studied by systematically varying its surface area, aspect ratio and its longitudinal position. The objective is to improve the understanding of the tail effect on the behaviour of the ornithopter and to assess if simple models based on tail geometry...

Taking full advantage of the favorable flight properties of biologically inspired flapping-wing micro aerial vehicles requires having insight into their dynamics and providing adequate control in all flight conditions. Because of the high complexity of flapping flight and limited availability of accurate flight data, however, global models are...

Although flapping-wing micro aerial vehicles have become a hot topic in academia, the knowledge we have of these systems, their force generation mechanisms and dynamics is still limited. Recent technological advances have allowed for the development of free flight test setups using on-board sensors and external tracking systems, for system...

With the increased use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) for civil and commercial applications, there is a strong demand for new regulations and technology that will eventually permit for the integration of UAS in unsegregated airspace. This requires new technology to ensure sufficient safety and a smooth integration process. The absence of a...

Despite an intensive research on flapping flight and flapping wing MAVs in recent years, there are still no accurate models of flapping flight dynamics. This is partly due to lack of free flight data, in particular during manoeuvres. In this work, we present, for the first time, a comparison of free flight forces estimated using solely an on...

This paper presents the results of a series of flight tests conducted in order to assess the steady-state flight characteristics and basic control behaviour of the DelFly, a flapping-wing micro aerial vehicle (FWMAV). Flights were conducted in an indoor motion tracking facility and included steady-level flight at a range of different velocities...
