A robot that flies like a bird

An amazing presentation of how the robot works. It’s hard to believe when you see it for the first time. The ornithopter can fly and trim easily. During the flight there are moments in which the robot glides like a real bird, then begins to wave its wings to ascend.

It is a pity, that the inventor (Sean Kinkade) of this amazing machine, passed away in a car accident.
