This 2017 Advanced Robotics journal paper is a follow up to our 2016 IROS conference paper.

Besides how wing opening magnitude, speed, height, and asymmetry affects the performance of winged dynamic self-righting, it reports additional experimental and modeling results and discussions on:

(1) how body mass and mass distribution affects dynamic winged self-righting, and

(2) how asymmetric wing opening affects final body heading and potential energy barriers.
