An attitude control of a micro-flight mechanism with magnetic rotational wings in an alternating magnetic field is discussed. The micro-flight mechanism is composed of the magnetic rotational wings, the body, and the arch to support the axis of the rotational wings. We define the axes as: x-axis is in the direction of the magnetic field, y-axis and z-axis are in the horizontal direction and in the vertical direction in the orthogonal plane to x-axis, respectively. The attitude control around y-axis and z-axis is conducted by the magnetic anisotropic torque. The attitude control by magnetic force, however, is not effective in x-axis direction. The direction of the thrust must be kept vertical; otherwise, the drift of the thrust enhances the roll around x-axis. The arch supports the axis of the rotational wings to keep the direction of the thrust. The attitude control around every axis was evaluated through the experiments with the fabricated micromechanisms. The micro-flight mechanism succeeded in floating to the guides for 8 seconds.
