Engineers have created a sophisticated new drone that looks and flies just like a bat.
Scientists say the finished product will be more agile than a normal drone, making it a safer bet to fly into disaster or construction zones.
The robotic bat mimics a real bat’s flight technique. Check out the video below to see it in action.
The robot bat is also less bulky than a standard drone which has spinning propellers that can prevent it navigating treacherous terrain.
Researchers are now working on getting the 85-gram robot to perch upside down.
They hope their drone could be ready for the market in the next five years.
