Delfly Micro Air Vehicle (MAV)

The DelFly is a Micro Air Vehicle (MAV), an extremely small, remote-controlled aircraft with an on-board camera that transmits images through a transmitter to a ground station. The DelFly Micro only weighs 3 grams and has a size of 10 cm from wing tip to wing tip. The camera transmits TV quality image signals to a ground station and therefore allows the DelFly to be operated remotely by an operator from a computer. It can be maneuvered using a joystick as if the operator was actually in the cockpit of the aircraft. Such ultra-small, remote-controlled, camera-equipped aircraft could be eventually used for observation flights in difficult-to-reach or dangerous areas.
