Crazy Exofly video -groovy!

The goal of this innovative project is to fly this flapping winged aerobot concept in an extraterrestrial atmosphere, towards which Ursa Minor is working in collaboration with the Universities of Delft and Wageningen. A demonstrator has been implemented for use in Earth atmosphere, capable of autonomous, stable and robust straight-line flight and hovering, as well as take-off and landing. A pinhole camera payload is currently integrated with data transmission capability.

would it handle a gust of wind? small flies don't have much of a problem because of there surface area, if this got blown into a tree or into some nose dive descent it'd be screwed right?

I'm sorry but it's clear that the delfly evolved on it's own. It has no designer or maker. It's a fluke of nature.
