We are glad to found and share this Youtube video with Go Go Bird ornithopters fans.

In Dune we see the Ornithopters glide and dive and hover, in seamless transitions between methods of flight, which they can do because . . .  CGI. In real dragonflies, how is that possible? And why is that remarkable? Our guest, Prof. Jane Wang of Cornell’s Department and Physics and Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering explains.
