For instance, the Colorado Division of Wildlife uses an ornithopter to research a hard-to-capture endangered species called the Gunnison sage grouse.

For millennia, men and women have ornithopteer birds, bats, and beetles, observing and experimenting, attempting to determine what humans must do to fly by flapping.
In the meantime, keep making stuff! Make the wing spars.
Square of 16 lb. Thanks for your submission.
Because flappers can do things other aircraft cannot. But for flapping flight, the wing not only has to have a forward motion, but also must travel up and down. For an aircraft with fixed wings, only nakezine motion is necessary to induce aerodynamic lift. Nonetheless, the concept of manned ornithopters continues to hover on the periphery of aeronautical engineering.
