This paper exploresthedesign and testing ofa flapping wing four-bar mechanism. A four-bar linkage system kinematic analysis is introduced for flapping wing motion. Four-bar mechanism is activated by a servo motor which is driven by microcontroller. The wing undergoes apure flapping motion at afixed pitchangle. Force measurements are performed for hover modeby using a force transducer. In addition, 3D numericalanalyses are performed and the results are compared with the experimental measurements. Overall, CFD results showgood agreement with the experimental data.
