Interdisciplinary Workshop on

Design and Development of


(Mechanisms & Real Time Flying)

Date: 6th August 2014

Flapping Wing Mavs, Or Ornithopters, have several advantages compared with rotary and fixed wing because they are less noisy, easily maneuverable, high power efficiency at low speed flight           and durable. Recent advances in small - scale flapping - wing micro aerial vehicles have extended the capabilities of flight control for a number of applications, such as intelligence, surveillance,  and reconnaissance activities.

This workshop focuses on construction and assembly of 20cm wingspan and 10g FWVs namely "Golden Snitch" which is designed and developed by Tamkang University, Taiwan.


Learning Modules

  •  Four bar linkage gear transmission module.
  •  Assembly of Fuselage, carbon rods and PET wings.
  •  Importance of horizontal and vertical tails.
  •  Construction methodologies of FWVs.


Workshop Structure and Topics Covered:

  •  Basics of Aerodynamics and flapping-wing flight.
  •  History of Ornithopters.
  •  Types of flapping-wing aircraft.
  •  Understanding the mechanisms involved in design of flapping-wing flight.
