You change only the angle of incidence ?
I change the flapping motion direction. I think this is more perspective.

Yes, I change an attack angle of front wings and control flight.

congratulations Dr kazu on another masterpeice so this steers by proportional steering by adjusting the height of the trailing edge correct?

Yes.
This maneuvering system is the same as a system of rear wings of Flappter19.

First flight test.


First flight test.

A tail is too big, and turning is not possible. I will thin a tail.
A thrust is not enough. I will increase thrusts.

DragonFly 21- 4 succeeded in a flight


A thrust increased, and a flight was stable.
Manoeuverability is good, too.
A thrust is not yet enough.
