1. Seems a bit underpowered.

2. Hope this doesn’t give the NSA any ideas.

I am NOT impressed.

When they make a flying drone out of a spotted wood owl or a California Condor, THEN I will be impressed!

It looks like they’ve attached the owl skin/feathers to a quad-copter, and that the extra weight barely allows it to get off the ground.

My brother in law flew CH54’s in 1967 Germany (army av). I sent him this link as what the new border patrol helos look like in Obama’s Army.

Sounds about right. The Orvillecopter is a much better implementation IMO, even allowing for the scale difference.

1. Seems a bit underpowered.

I just assumed that since it was an ostrich, it was supposed to be flightless.

2. Hope this doesn’t give the NSA any ideas.

Yeah, looks pretty inconspicuous.

Requesting this be done for one stuffed pig... would be a hit in the parking lot of any Pink Floyd concert... like that will ever happen...

When pigs fly, indeed... I suppose.
