The record was set in an open field on the outskirts of Beijing when the winged drone stayed in the air for one hour, 30 minutes and 4.98 seconds.

According to Chinese media, previous ornithopter records did not exceed the half-hour mark. A team led by researcher Zhao Longfei applied to break the record in October 2021.

The idea of ​​the first ornithopter originated with Leonardo da Vinci in 1485. During initial testing, the Chinese drone has already been able to fly for 53 minutes. After optimizing the power plant and dynamics of the wing, its flight characteristics almost doubled.

Ornithopters imitate the flight of birds, bats and insects. According to the Chinese researcher, the development of this type of technology allows the design of new innovative aircraft models, scare away birds near airports, and even help create probes for the exploration of Mars.
