Copying a Bird’s FlightMorphing Plane Wings

This video shows a small propeller plane with morphing wings that transforms in flight by copying the behavior of a bird’s wings. The design is based on the swift bird.

The wings can sweep backwards for higher speeds and then extend back to slow down again. The plane features electric motors which adjust the wings as well as cameras for studying birds while flying.
