Watch a drone fly steady despite heavy winds

Moths are excellent at responding to unexpected obstacles while flying, whether it’s a gust of wind or wall. Researchers recorded moths’ flight with a high speed camera and converted what they learned into an algorithm, which they then fed into a drone. New Scientist reports that the 1.1 pound InstantEye drone can withstand winds of more than 54 miles per hour.
