RC Raptors Take Flight!

RC Raptors Take Flight!

Although these RC ornithopters are intended to scare away nuisance birds, we just want to know how we can get our hands on one! Designed by Dutchman Nico Nijenhuis of Clear Flight Solutions, the 47-inch-span Robird peregrine falcon and 86-inch-span eagle look and fly just like the real thing and can fly at speeds of up to 50mph!  The manufacturer even intends to make them autonomous, but where’s the fun in that? Until then, we want to enter the eagle in our next giant-scale fly-in (with scale documentation from Audubon!)  Enjoy this great video of the Robirds in action.
