RC Bird

Has anyone had any luck with making a model fo a RC bird? I was thinking along the lines of a seagull.

Thanks, Pete.

A Seagull?? You'll have to make sure and add a tank to carry a bunch of that white stuff they dump on you all the time at the beach. LOL Eddie Fulmer

Pete, The Kit for the Slope Soaring Seagull has been around for years from Bird Works.

Yes Eddie, There is an option to make it into a "Shave Cream" poop bomber.

You can even try before you buy, since the site has a FMS simulator version of their Seagull as a free download.

Yes. They fall into three types.

(i) Silly fun. The 'Funky Chicken' (ii) almost scale outline. The slope soaring gulls and hawks. (iii) Ornithopters. There is a suberb carbon fiber and electric motor contraption out there called a park hawk.

Frankly, I love em all. Hope to even fly some one day.

Along with 'fanasy scale' - you know planes out of 'star wars' etc.

RCM has a plan from many years ago. If I recall one was used in the filming of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull".
