Robot flies by flapping wings

The flying robot developed in Holland is able to stay and move in the air just by flapping its wings like a dragonfly. The robot just weighs 16.04 grams and it has 30 cm maximum dimension at its height. It is able to stay afloat for 8 minutes while flying with speeds ranging from 0.5 m/s to 15 m/s. Vertical climb, vision based stabilization, beyond line sight operation, target recognition are among its abilities. The biomimetic and low noise body makes the robot a real useful tool for many possible applications. See video below:
