Remote-controlled 'iBird' takes wing

It supposedly simulates a bird's flight by using "realistic flapping wing movements."

Thumbs Up UK

Now here's a novel concept. We've seen all manner of objects take remote-controlled flight, from mosquitos and dragonflies to laser choppers and UFOs , but there's one that's been conspicuously overlooked: a bird.

Actually, it's an "iBird," to be exact (of course). Silverlit, which makes this winged avenger, says it simulates a bird's flight by using "realistic flapping wing movements" and is part of the "latest generation of RC flyers," according to GeekAlerts. That, at least, may be the case as long as it doesn't go anywhere near the robotic raptor " Falco ."
