Successful sustained flight, researchers see future in manned bird-like flapping-wing ornithopter aircraft.

I think we are witnessing a new era in aviation: The ornithopter aircraft.

Just imagine what a 100 passenger version could do.

Make a bigger crash? Big grin
Looks cool, though. Can you image seeing one of those things flapping past you? My cat would go nuts.

Pfff...that thing is hilarious. I especially love the single wheel, nose down landing. I think I'd sooner fly Korean than on one of those things!

LOL cool machine! But remember that the more moving parts, the higher the mx cost (well generally). That's gotta be slow, too.

Very cool, though  Smile
