Keywords: flapping aircraft, wing deformation, gust response
Stability derivatives of the flapping aircraft subject to disturbance input were derived, and the dynamics was modeled with the deformation of the wing. The control performances were investigated with the variation of the design parameters. The results show the optimal elasticity parameters and feedback gain.
