Plenty of engineers are using nature as an inspiration to improve their designs. EPFL engineers have developed a drone with feathered wings and tail that can fly with impressive agility. It moves its wing and tail to change direction faster and fly slower without falling to the ground.
This drone has a propeller to move forward instead of flapping its wings. These types of winged drones can achieve longer flight time in comparison to quadcopters. The above video shows it in action.
