Metafly Robotic – time to experience flight like never before
French aeronautical engineer Edwin van ruymbeke, has surpassed goals in crowdfunding his bionic bird, a remote-control robot that mimics the action of a live bird or flying insect. Metafly takes to the sky using a unique process called biomimetics, denoting synthetic ways that imitate natural processes. A bizarre bio mimetic controllable creature. Forget about drones. It’s time to experience flight like never before.
Metafly can take turns, fly fast or slow, and move around just about anything. It weighs less than 10 grams (0.35 oz), is 19cm long (7.5 in), and has a 29cm (11.4 in) wingspan. It can reach top speeds of 18 km/h (11 mph) and has a maximum range of 100 meters (328 ft). Tweaking the angle of the tail alters flight characteristics.
