firefly week 3

The main concept of the firefly is down confirmed and we have worked out that the wings will be powered by a pulsing electric motor, this motor will be attached to a differential gear and then attached to two independent cams that will flap the wing which are mounted on pivots and return using gravity. the tail will be lit by a pulsing light that will be activated with the motor via an LDR. the breadboard and kit will be hidden in the base and the wires will be run up through a pipe into the main body of the beast.
