Mechanical Bird Bro

11.9k sheepsblood  2 months ago

This is not an Ornithopter. This is a Mechnical Bird Bro! Now fly it YO! HOW TO FLY: First press up on the throttle for a second, so you get to about half speed. QUICKLY put the Landing Gear UP! You have to do this so the bird kicks off the ground as she lifts up. If not then you won't get airborne. Pull UP but down turn yet, make sure you get to full throttle and then you can make your maneuvers. This takes little skill. A keyboard is obviously the best bet, sorry mobile users. Give me an idea how to execute this better and I will try it out. I am positive you will find it an interesting build. As for landing... Well you can land but I am betting you won't land flat on your feet in order to take off again. Maybe you will, I hope so. A version 2 maybe for the near future? Better landing, easier takeoff..........

    This is pretty cool, and don't worry, you can take off on mobile, it's pretty easy too.
