Abstract In this paper various simple plane configurations of the wings of the actuators by motion investigations in fluid (water or air) are being reviewed. The first part of the report deals with the investigation of motion of a single degree of freedom (1DOF) - rotation system. The rotational motion equations are obtained by the relations of classical mechanics. An approximate one-sided interaction of the fluids and wing elements is described by the exchange the momentum of the fluid particle flux impact. Approximate correlations are obtained for modeling the rotation motion with different actuator excitations. The possibilities of adding a rotary linear or non - linear spring are analyzed. The possibility of blocking the actuator's movement with a stop is considered. In the second part of the report, plane motion of the object is analyzed taking into account the results of the first part of investigations. An analysis is carried out to synthesize the actuator's application for objects flying or diving motion excitation in robot technics.
