Inspired by dragonfly flight
All thanks to lightweight construction and function integration: with the BionicOpter, Festo has technically mastered the highly complex flight characteristics of the dragonfly. Just like its model in nature, this ultralight flying object can fly in all directions, hover in mid-air and glide without beating its wings.
We fly Robinson R-44 and R-22 helicopters; these comfortable and safe aircrafts offer our clients the ability to enjoy a smooth flight whether flying for work or pleasure and are entrusted with flying a vast array of clients from all aspects of business from ranchers, wildlife enthusiasts, and farmers to entrepreneurs and oilfield companies.
- The Westland WS-51 Dragonfly helicopter was built by Westland Aircraft and was a licence-built version of the American Sikorsky S-51.
- Walkera Dragonfly. Have you ever flown a Walkera Dragonfly? At the time, the Dragonfly was one of the most popular RC (radio control) helicopters on the market. It was able to perform aerial tricks like no other. For the quality, performance and price this was indeed an awesome unit.
- In 2013, the Draganflyer was the first drone to save a human life. Years later, we’re still leaders in using drone technology to keep the public safe.

Fly Dragonfly Rc Helicopter Manual
Thirteen degrees of freedom for unique flight manoeuvres
In addition to control of the shared flapping frequency and twisting of the individual wings, each of the four wings also features an amplitude controller. The tilt of the wings determines the direction of thrust. Amplitude control allows the intensity of the thrust to be regulated. When combined, the remote-controlled dragonfly can assume almost any position in space.

Fly Dragonfly 2005 Rc Helicopter
Highly integrated lightweight design
This unique way of flying is made possible by the lightweight construction and the integration of functions: components such as sensors, actuators and mechanical components as well as open- and closed-loop control systems are installed in a very tight space and adapted to one another.
