  • An experimental study was conducted to assess the aerodynamic benefits of using flexible membrane wings for the development of flapping-wing Micro-Air-Vehicles (MAVs). The overall aerodynamic performances (i.e. time-averaged lift and thrust/drag generation) of two flexible membrane wings with different skin flexibility (i.e., a flexible nylon wing and a more flexible latex wing) were compared with those of a conventional rigid wing in order to assess the effects of skin flexibility (rigidity… CONTINUE READING
