The Silent Flyer

to See Without Being Seen
THE AUTONOMOUS BIRD-LIKE DEVICE “SILENT FLYER” THAT FLYGILDI IS DEVELOPING USES FLAPPING FLIGHT FOR LIFT AND PROPULSION INSTEAD OF PROPELLERS.
THE UNIQUE WING DESIGN ALLOWS INDEPENDENT REAL-TIME CONTROL OF THE WINGS FOR FLAPPING, TILTING THE WINGS, MOVING THE WINGS BACK AND FORTH AND IN AND OUT (MORPHING). THE WINGS CAN ALSO BE FOLDED TO THE BODY OF THE BIRD FOR EASY TRANSPORT.
LATER ON THE WING DESIGN WILL ENABLE THE DEVICE TO HOVER AND DIVE FOR UNDERWATER SWIMMING..
