Coaxial helicopter with a flybar is passively stable, which makes it easy to fly but at the same time compromises its maneuvering capability. So we got rid of the flybar which makes the vehicle very unstable. Active stabilization is achieved using onboard sensors. Vehicle with active stability if far more agile. See it in action below:

The video embedded below shows the test flight of a coaxial Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) being developed at IIT Kanpur with funding from NP-MiCAV supported by AR&DB. The vehicle shown uses Microsoft Kinect sensor for real time obstacle detection and avoidance. For details of ongoing research activity visit the Research page.
