Re-STOL Micro Ornithopterswith Four Strategies for Improvement
between two flapping wings. The above four newly developed features of ornithopters can preliminarily solve their current four shortcomings, i.e., vulnerable to gust wind, short flight endurance, hard to autonomously control and small payload, to great extent.
