Paper Abstract

This paper investigates the stabilization and control for flapping-wing flight of a simple flapping-wing vehicle. The aerodynamic forces and moments of flapping-wing flight are estimated by modified strip theory. From the resultant forces of the aerodynamics the flight dynamic analyses have been performed. For simulating cruising flight, one of the proper conditions has been chosen through parametric study and is assigned to the dynamics. As a result the trajectory and the body orientation of the vehicle are obtained which shows phugoid and short period motion in trim condition. With an adequate tail-wing pitch control, the vehicle simulated level-up movement from a trim condition to another.
