Now with more feathers!
The Avitron V2.0 R/C Flying Bird is a bionic bird by French company Avitron that mimics natural flight movements, enabling it to fly for 8 minutes on a single 12-minute charge on the included remote. The whole system is appropriate for indoor and outdoor use, requires 6 AA batteries, and is safe for pilots 10 and older. It is available for purchase at ThinkGeek.
Any mechanical plane or copter enthusiast would have a blast learning to fly this half-bird, half-plane. And that is exactly what it looks like once in flight. Adjustable speed, including low-speed functionality, mean that a dedicated pilot can work to create a realistic looking bird in flight.
