    Are the skies so crowded that this is needed so they can fly closer together?

    Create more lift on a model is not quite the same wit the real thing. Maybe one day they can actually have an engine that runs of water and air

    In 20 years we'll have wings dynamically adjusting shape and angle based on AI algorithms to optimize lift even during turns and maneuvers. It will be more like birds.

    I thought those wings will fold in the inner portion area.

    While you're at it see if an aluminum airplane wing can slice through a 2" steel I-beam.

    Pretty cool. They had these on the XB71 Valkyrie, which down down folding wing ends to create a compression effect on that super fast bird. I do not think the tips on the XB71 folded upward.

    If you want to show wings that fold, try using a folding wing that actually folds.
