Re: Micro Air Vehicles
Take a look at "Fixed and Flapping Wing Aerodynamics for Micro Air Vehicle Applications", AIAA Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics, Vol 195. Ed. Thomas J Mueller.

More on the flexible wings, take a look at the links pointing towards Univ. of Florida at Not sure if all are accurate though, but UF is the right place to look for this.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried aerovironments website, they have researched the mirco air vechile concept and are moving towards products. I think they have also conducted research into ornithoptors.

Re: Micro Air Vehicles
That's true, AeroVironment is probably the leader in this business. But the only paper you can find from the website is the Black Widow - one.
