Robot Hummingbird Surveillance

Originally from ‘popularmechanics.com’

[“The idea was not to create a robotic hummingbird,” says Matt Keennon, AeroVironment’s NAV project manager. “We wanted to make something that emulated the flight dynamics of a hummingbird…. As far as we know, this is a new form of man-made flight.” The company says it’s the first two-wing, flapping aircraft that carries its own energy source and can hover and fly forward. ]

The pentagon has contracted a company called AeroVironment to create a hummingbird like machine that is used to record video… this is just a prototype.
