If drones had wings – Butterfly Utilitary Transformation Toy

If drones had wings – Butterfly Utilitary Transformation Toy

What would happen if you put wings on a drone? Foldable wings that act like airbrakes or a parachute and increase hang-time in the air. I’ve decided to check that out and this is how Project “Butterfly Utilitary Transformation Toy” was created. Basically, B.U.T.T is two servos and two “wings”, “waffles”, “whatevers” that can fold and deploy on command. Everything is driven by INAV 2.2.1 with Logic Conditions. Important: wings are not deployed by hand by the user! INAV deploys them when the throttle is low! INAV is smart ๐Ÿ™‚
The final question: does it work? Kind of… Maybe… Hard to tell… My FPV drone for sure behaves in a different way in the air when the throttle is pulled low and wings deployed!
