Thanks zoomer, I have been rather busy lately but when I do get back to the bird it will be a quick job. I have dabbled around with a few bird wing designs without a body and they worked well, although I eventually got a bit bored. Hopefully this project will spark new interest for me in this field. I was thinking about a light weight flapping walkalong glider with high frequency wing beats that produce small amounts of lift, slight forward thrust and lots of drag much like seagulls produce ground effect over the ocean except with less drag than what I need to keep up, sounds a bit easier said than done I know
