There have been many people involved with the project. Ever since research into ornithopters was begun by James DeLaurier and Jeremy Harris over 20 years ago, it has received overwhelming support from various organizations (see the Sponsors page) and individuals. Below are some pictures of various team members throughout the years. However, these by no means represent all who have been involved with the project.
