The Great Leonopteryx (aka) Toruk

Who will be the first to take a stab at building a flying Toruk? I have wanted to do just that and so far all I have gotten is 22 Screen Shots from the movie Avatar. I know that who ever is the first will have their hands full in trying to achieve a flying Leonopteryx. I'm confident it can be achieved with some trial and error.

I have taken screen 22 screen shots from the movie Avatar, but I have yet to take the plunge. Anyone considering taking the task?

Very nice build Kasu. very nice.. at the moment I can't view the youtube links as I'm at work and we are blocked, but as soon as I get a chance from home I will. I saw your other build and I must say, very impressive collection of scratch build you got there.

The build I would like to try will consist mainly of FFF or paper less dollar tree foam. Wing span in the ball park of around 36 and the AUW around 24oz.

At the moment my mind is telling me to go for it.. I've still yet to even free hand draw the plan..

Leonopteryx 11-1 of Avatar: First Fight & Gliding with New GLDAB

I made Leonopteryx and flew it.
Leonopteryx is a flight creature appearing in Avatar.
This creature which James Cameron created has a suitable design for flight.
Hind legs work well as inverted V-shaped V-tail.
Flight manoeuverability of Leonopteryx 11-1 is very good.
Please look next site for more detail.

Now that is amazing..
little more than what I had in mind to build. If given a chance to order on online, I'd be ready with my credit card or paypal..

Nicely done, Kaku..
