Here is an amazing creation 'MetaFly', a drone that mimics the movement of a real bird or flying insect, by a French aeronautical engineer 'Edwin Van Ruymbeke'.

MetaFly takes turns, flies fast/slow, manoeuvres around anything. It can reach top speeds of 18 km/h (11 mph) and has a maximum range of 100 meters (328 ft). The insect drone weighs less than 10 grams, is 19cm long (7.5 in), and has a 29cm (11.4 in) wingspan.

MetaFly can be operated by a two-channel remote control. It can fly in most compact spaces and is crash-proof. It has elastic wings made of carbon fibre, liquid crystal polymer, and oriented polypropylene. The drone has front and back bumpers to protect its body.

MetaFly is powered by a hybrid lithium polymer battery. The device can be charged either by placing it into a dock with the remote or using a separate power bank. Metafly is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign.
