Merry Christmas! I still check in here all the time, but I really should post more. Still pushing ahead on my elaborate 4DOF feathered wings I've finally reached the point that there's little doubt I can make them and they will work, only a question of how good the aerodynamic performance will be. My test wing now folds and unfolds smoothly while also being load-bearing (tested up to 1400g, but only 1kg shown because my arm kept shaking too much when stretched out to get a good photo with the third hunk of aluminum on it ). Still a few tweaks to make to the skeleton, and figuring out the propatagium, but that shouldn't be too difficult.

Canada goose may be a good model for human flight, but was a terrible choice for prototyping So many feathers... But thanks to my murderous cat, I was able to procure a pair of robin wings a few months ago, and am currently picking one apart to create a new set of feather molds from it. Only 9 primaries and 9 secondaries, versus 10 primaries and 19 secondaries for the goose. My first pair of flight-worthy wings will be made from that scaled up 4x to about 1.4m wingspan.

I'm also able to make cycloidal drives now. The first-generation design that I posted here a couple years ago is mostly complete, but will likely remain that way as I'm already onto the next-gen even-more-awesomely-integrated design, using a second cycloidal for the wing sweep axis and compound planetary gears for humerus twist.
