Keywords: mav, gap, bird-like assembled wing
The bird-like assembled wing is studied expecting the aerodynamic advantage of bird wing with anti-stall characteristics owing to the gaps between feathers. The wind tunnel experiment of the artificial bird-like assembled wings revealed such anti-stall characteristics indicating the availability of the assembled wings for the flight stability of small UAV.
