ISR and the Maryland Robotics Center have created a new YouTube video featuring two Robo Raven UAVs showing off their aerobatic moves.

This new video is a companion to the original Robo Raven video released in spring 2013.

Robo Raven is a breakthrough flapping wing UAV developed by University of Maryland Professors S.K. Gupta (ME/ISR) and Hugh Bruck (ME) and their students. This robotic bird features wings that flap completely independently of each other, which can be programmed to perform any desired motion. This enables the bird to perform aerobatic maneuvers. Robo Raven is the first robotic bird with these capabilities that has been built and successfully flown.
