Designing Stable Tiny Fliers
This 1:51 min long video, demonstrates how two researchers looking for more stable designs,analyzed the behavior of paper “bugs” of a variety of shapes (including cones, pyramids, umbrellas, and saucer-shaped UFOs) flying in a “flapping-flight wind tunnel” – a low-frequency woofer loudspeaker, turned upward and fitted with a metallic cap and a clear cylinder in which bugs fly. They found that top-heavy designs are the most stable.
