Electronic Butterfly Answered

Dear all: Have anyone trying to make an electronic flapping butterfly with flapping pattern that resemble an actual butterfly? Can you shine some light on me if you've attempt it before? If not, do you have any suggestion? Phillip


Try a version of this: https://www.instructables.com/id/EG7BX7AVJ7EXCFLX7K/

I'm (still) halfway through using this to make a flapping dragonfly sitting on a box (I've made the circuit, it twitches fine, I just need to make the actual dragonfly and find a nice box to sit it on.

Some people on this site have made devices called Ornithopters, which are designed to flap like a bird. The ones on this site are here and here.

Good luck
