Paper Abstract

A 12 gram fly-inspired flapping wing micro air vehicle was stabilized in the yaw degree of freedom using insectbased wing kinematic for lift generation and control actuation. The characteristic parameters of biological insect flapping flight are described. The integration of this parametric understanding of biological flight into the design of the vehicle is also discussed.
