I had to figure out what this was for myself. Thank you for recommending this, my husband has horrific back pain sometimes and I’ve been looking for a way to help without breaking my hands.

If they moved fast enough, yes. It already works with bugs and hummingbirds and small hummingbird like robots.

Is there a material strong enough and light enough and stiff enough and flexible enough to withstand this type of motion at these scales? Maybe graphene, the wonder material that makes everything possible. The vibration would still probably rip the entire craft to pieces. Those elbow joints have to move the entire weight of that wing up and down like 20-100 times a second or whatever it would take. Imagine one of those impact massagers, now imagine being in a vehicle that is constantly shaking with that much intensity everywhere at all times. Really fun ride. Maybe there’s a way to mechanically isolate the lift system so the vibration is not there for the passengers.

Even if we did have the materials to build something like this, we wouldn’t. We’d use those same supermaterials to build a better helicopter or some other VTOL that’s lighter, generates more lift, improves safety, moves faster, or costs less.

We copy nature when it makes sense but machinery has something that nature doesn’t, axles. Everything in nature has had to operate with limited rotation, if I twist an owl’s neck in one direction ten times, I end up with a dead owl. We can build a machine that can independently turn a part infinitely many times in one direction without needing to ever turn back to a rest position. Animals could probably greatly benefit from being designed like a helicopter or a wagon but there isn’t an evolutionary pathway that lets them reach that design. Specifically, there’s no benefit for a freely rotating joint system to exist, except at the end state, and evolution doesn’t build that way.

There’s a reason why things are discovered first, because it was the easiest way to make it work. Being granted mythic level materials makes the hard solutions possible but it also makes the easy solutions easier. But whatever, it’s sci-fi, it doesn’t have to make sense, Dune also has FTL and they trust drug addicts with predicting the future. In this specific application in this universe, dragonfly flapping wings were the better solution for whatever reason.
