DelFly Nimble Insect-Inspired Drone

DelFly Nimble Insect-Inspired Drone
The innovative DelFly Nimble robot mimics natural insect flight for unprecedented free-flying dexterity.

Developed by the team from Delft University, the DelFly Nimble eschews the standard tail or behind-wing control systems in favor of two pairs of wings able to flap in and out in an X shape. The unique structure of the drone allows it to create a yaw effect as well as pitch and roll control, providing exceptional dexterity as well as a top speed of 15.5 miles per hour. According to the team, the lack of a tail also makes the DelFly Nimble less vulnerable to damage, and the tiny drone can still carry a payload of up to four grams.
