  • A remote-controlled goose.

    Hello Community,

    an acquaintance of mine, builds remote-controlled bird models. The parts he needs for it, he makes "all" itself. I have carved the goose head with neck for this bird. He made a cast of light plastic from it. See just how fantastic the model flies.

      Very interesting video. If the model were carved to resemble a hawk, it could be used to scare off other birds in the vicinity of airports to prevent damage to airplanes.

        That's really unique. It's neat that the parts are not just the Made in China variety.

          Science fiction has become fact. Beautiful to watch.
          I'm glad there are many people building flying model birds.

          You did a very good job to carve the head and neck of the goose for this project.

              Nah. Launch that beast to join a big Vee of Canada geese.
              Try to get some geese to peel off with the robot and fly right into my decoy set.

              What I see in Tasman's carving for the model is a very well done left/right symmetry.

                  My education as to what is possible just keeps on continuing. What a clever piece of machinery (with a very nice head).

                    That is Awesome Tasmandevil! I had no idea such a thing existed. How cool to be a part of making that by carving the head and neck to be cast, well done! I loved the little face plant of the goose when he landed! Thanks for sharing that.

                      That looks like a lot of fun. Amazing watching the wings work like a real bird, that took some practice! The head really adds to the overall shape in flight.
