In our research project “NeuroCopter” we study the honeybee brain while the animal is navigating. We attach living honeybees to a quadcopter, fly over known or unknown terrain, and observe the bee’s behavior and brain activity. This is our first prototype of the copter that carries a long carbon fiber arm on whose end the honeybee will be attached. The copter flies stably and the gimbal compensates for the pitch and roll movements of the copter. Nice!
