I'd say it's more of a glider. I didn't witness any "lift" from human power. Even when the tow line was released it seemed to begin losing altitude.
Canadian enthusiasts have finally achieved a feat that has eluded humanity's finest engineers since the time of Leonardo da Vinci - to build a machine, powered by a human pilot's muscles, which flies by flapping its wings: an ornithopter.
I'd be more impressed if it didn't need to be towed by a car to get it off the ground.
