Abstract

This paper presents an experimental demonstration of perching by a micro aerial vehicle (MAV) equipped with articulated wings. A novel feature of the MAV considered in this paper is that wing dihedral, controlled independently on both wings, is used for yaw stability and control as well as for maintaining the flight path angle. Yaw stability and control are essential for perching in tightly constrained places. The experiments described in this paper were conducted indoors and flight parameters are measured using the VICON motion capture system.
