  • a drone body anda rotary wing part connected to the drone body,wherein;

    the rotary wing part comprises a first rotary wing module and a second rotary wing module, the first rotary wing module and the second rotary wing module each comprising at least two rotary wings connected to each other and arranged linearly;

    in each of the first rotary wing module and the second rotary wing module, two rotary wings, which are adjacent, are articulated, one of the rotary wings constitutes a basic rotary wing, and other rotary wings constitute folding rotary wings;

    the folding rotary wings are operable to sequentially fold and unfold, thereby transitioning between a folded wing configuration and an unfolded wing configuration, wherein, in the folded wing configuration, the folding rotary wings are folded onto the basic rotary wing;

    the first rotary wing module and the second rotary wing module are respectively articulated to two sides of the drone body via the respective basic rotary wing, thereby enabling the first rotary wing module and the second rotary wing module to transition between a folded wing module configuration and an unfolded wing module configuration by rotating about respective articulating shafts; and
