Abstract : Flying snakes exhibit efficient gliding performance even though they lack any sophisticated flight morphologies like wings. In an earlier work, a gliding algorithm for non-equilibrium glides of such snakes was modeled. In the current work, this is extended to initiate and control turns. The curvature of the centerline of the snake-like body is varied using an n-chain model of the snake and p-d controllers during flight. Trajectory control through way point guidance is shown to be possible in a limited sense. Two aerodynamic models are compared for their ability to induce steeper turns.
