An aerodynamic model for the forces and moments acting on a minimally actuated flapping wing micro air vehicle (FWMAV) are derived from blade element theory. The proposed vehicle is similar to the Harvard RoboFly that accomplished the first takeoff of an insect scale flapping wing aircraft, except that it is equipped with independently actuated wings and the vehicle center-of-gravity can be manipulated for control purposes. Using a blade element-based approach, both instantaneous and cycle… CONTINUE READING
