Creating micro flying robots has always been the dream of a number of researchers around the world. The first success had come from Europe when it unveiled the smallest and the lightest flying robots in the world. This event took place in the year 2003 but it still holds its importance. A lot of research and technical findings had been done prior to the creation of the flying robots. The launch of these flying robots marked a special point in the history, because the earlier robots used to be operated by wire, but there was nothing of that kind in the flying robots, as they were fully automatic.
This flying robot was developed by a supplier of micro robotic parts and its actual weight was 6.9 grams. It was in the shape of a helicopter and it had four axis full controls. It had its own rotors, the diameter of the rotors was 148 mm and it had an infrared controller. Later, in Oslo a similar robot was developed which was more aerodynamically sound than its earlier version. This was also in the shape of a helicopter and it had two co axial rotors whose diameter was 128 mm.
Both of these robots were powered from the batteries and these batteries were placed on board. The batteries were normally lithium polymer batteries. Two main polymers had been used in the construction of this robot - carbon fiber and Kevlar. They are known as the space age material. These flying robots are not made for the use by the general public rather they are made to satisfy the demands of the robot companies and at the same time they are made to represent a concept in the market.
Flying robots have seen a long span of time before coming into the actual shape. A number of changes have taken place in its design and therefore the flying robots are in a position like never before.
