This thread explores wing fold.
Fold is defined as a retraction of the wing laterally along the horizontal plane and occurs perpendicular to the flap axis.
Fold is present in all vertebrate natural models. http://arthropter.blogspot.com/
Why aren't we doing this?
Examples of man-made wings that fold?
What are the benefits of fold?
What are the costs of fold?
When is the wing folded?
-wing retracted for upstroke
-wing extended for downstroke
-gliding (no flap) extended and retracted for control
Examples of biological wings that fold:
