New research shows that the aircraft can glide as insects become reality.
Group expert Professor Zhang Jun of New York University (USA) have discovered leader capable of hovering in midair object may depend more on the distribution of its weight, not like people thought.
Machines such as free-flying insects
Accordingly, the move will be easier for the top structure heavier, different inferences that have stable long the new flight weight.
To determine the type of structure to maintain equilibrium is best when flying, experts insects create enough paper with different emphases.
The results showed that most of the insects form the focus at the top move more easily, while the focus on the bottom is almost impossible to maintain the ability to balance.
The findings may lead to the wealth of equipment manufactured glider, including military aircraft. Currently only a few units are hovering in stable atmospheric conditions, such as Harrier AV-8 and V-22 Osprey US military.
However, the plane does not work as expected, and the same type of aircraft being manufactured in recent years are still issues such as energy consumption, as well as the period is very low glide.
The study published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
