Flaptter in LAPUTA (Hayao Miyazaki ' animation)


Do you know Flaptter?

The flying object which Hayao Miyazaki created is very interesting, but a fly is difficult in the real sky.
In the real sky, I flew the flying object which appeared in an anime of Hayao Miyazaki.

Mowen of Nausicaa of the valley of the wind.
メーヴェ Soraへ Möwen of Nausicaä Flight in the Sky (3 min 11 sec)


Gunship of Nausicaa of the valley of the wind.

Next target is Flaptter of LAPUTA.
First Flapping test.

Hi Dr Kakuta ...

You never stop to amaze me/us . This Flappter has such a complex flapping mechanism and I think you should implement it in bigger Birds with actively twisted profiled wings.

Extraordinary work Doctor... You're so talented ..and so skillful to.. fine craftsmanship...

Those expensive flying toys are all made in Japan ....

Gunship of Nausicaa is much easy to build,it's a flying wing configuration.
Flaptter of LAPUTA is extremly difficult to creat, and you did it again,that is really something eles,FANTASTIC...
