A flight test of one of the Morpheus Lab's flapping wing UAVs was shown in Aerospace America Magazine December 2012 issue under this year in review (See page 4).

University of Maryland graduate students, in collaboration with Penn State University, conducted an unprecedented flight test of a custom-built avian-scale flapping wing UAV. The test, conducted at the AFRL Micro Air Vehicle Laboratory (the largest Vicon motion capture system lab in the U.S.), evaluated the performance of the ornithopter, whose compliant wing structure mimics the function of an avian wrist.
