Development of a Flying Robot With a Pantograph-Based Variable Wing Mechanism

Abstract

We develop a flying robot with a new pantograph-based variable wing mechanism for horizontal-axis rotorcrafts (cyclogyro rotorcrafts). A key feature of the new mechanism is to have a unique trajectory of variable wings that not only change angles of attack but also expand and contract according to wing positions. As a first step, this paper focuses on… (More)
