Roboticists made a shape-shifting drone inspired by hawks

Engineers in Switzerland have designed a drone with maneuverable wings that resembles a hawk, said Rob Verger at Popular Science. The most popular drones today are either fixed-wing — similar to miniature airplanes — or use rotating propellers that “can act like wings and provide lift.”

But roboticists wanted to create a more “birdlike drone that’s capable of cruising long distances at high speeds (like a fixed-wing plane) while remaining highly maneuverable.”
