Use of a wall-climbing robot for inspection or maintenance of wall surfaces has been anticipated for a long time. Three quite different models have been developed in our laboratory. The present model can move on a wall by using the thrust force of a propeller and can fly whenever it is required. Its mechanism and control system are discussed.
