Dynamic Soaring is a flying technique which extracts energy from an environment where wind gradients form, with the potential to increase the endurance of small unmanned vehicles. The feasibility to use dynamic soaring flight is questioned here; it r... Read More about Energy-harvesting mechanisms for UAV flight by dynamic soaring.
