Proc. ASME. SMASIS2009, Volume 2: Multifunctional Materials; Enabling Technologies and Integrated System Design; Structural Health Monitoring/NDE; Bio-Inspired Smart Materials and Structures, 647-653, September 21–23, 2009
Paper No: SMASIS2009-1323
... Ornithopter studies in the past have focused on ornithopter construction, power sources, wing design, maximizing thrust, energy efficiency, steady flight trajectories, and flight stability. The next step is to control unsteady maneuvers: the transition from hovering flight to forward flight...

Proc. ASME. SMASIS2008, Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems, Volume 2, 679-686, October 28–30, 2008
Paper No: SMASIS2008-615
... 24 07 2009 Ornithopter flight dynamics and a method for developing flight trajectories are described. These are used to study the unstable modes in hovering ornithopter flight. Stabilization is accomplished through three strategies: pitch-rate feedback control, linear quadratic...
