A Designing Approach For A Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicle

A flapping wing approach has proven to be one of the most successful methods in designing the Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs). These miniature vehicles seek to mimic small birds and insects to achieve never before seen agility in flight.This paper aims at suggestion of flapping mechanisms, wing and frame design and the materials to be used during designing of an ornithopter. Various mechanisms are discussed and improved upon untill the final mechanism is obtained which offers unique advantage over the rest in terms of simplicity,weight and drag considerations, frictional losses and symmetric flapping. Analysis on NACA profile chosen for the bird wing is done and few important graphs are plotted and studied. Through this an attempt has been made to provide a roadmap on how to move forward while designing an ornithopter.
