With the BionicOpter, Festo has technically mastered the highly complex flight characteristics of the dragonfly. Just like its model in nature, this ultralight flying object can fly in all directions, hover in mid-air and glide without beating its wings. The BionicOpter is being featured at the Festo booth at Hanover Fair 2013, April 8-12.
