Very interesting video
SmartBird is modelled on the herring gull and can take off, fly and land
while its flight is controlled remotely from the ground in real time.
To take off, the robotic bird flaps its wings with the help of an onboard
motor. As the wings beat, the front edge also twists, enabling airflow
along the wings to generate thrust. Once in flight, the tail acts as a
rudder to steer the bird through the air.
