Quite an amazing piece of micro engineering and it is even more amazing seeing how realistic it is in flight...............

And there you can see one of the problems of flying one of these. It's a behaviour that probably goes back to the dinosaurs - smaller birds will mob bigger birds to drive them off. I'd bet that will not do your model any good.

Cracking bit of engineering though. Master Leonardo would have been so pleased.

It looks like a copy of this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fg_JcKSHUtQ - go to 2.00 minutes to see it fly.

This is a good start if anyone is interested in Ornithopters (Flying models)

Festo started out with the air fish, and now you can buy those anywhere.
However, it is neat to see what else they create in their labs.
Air ray, and  penguins, also both have versions for the water.
Some of their handling systems modeled on elephant trunks. Right out of the "Matrix".
Here is their jelly fish.
