First Successful Flight of the Snowbird Human-Powered Ornithopter
Interestingly, but not shockingly, the Snowbird ornithopeter uses Derk Thijs’ Rowingbike mechanism instead of a bicycle mechanism.
Lazily, I shall simply point you to the organization’s website:
Successful Flight of the Snowbird!!!!
Wed, 09/22/2010 – 11:22
On July 31st and August 2nd, 2010 the Snowbird succeeded in completing several sustained flights!! On the longest flight the altitude and airspeed were maintained for 19.3 seconds, setting a world first, and achieving the age-old aeronautical dream of self-powered flapping wing flight! The accomplishment of our goal is a success shared by all, and I must thank everyone who was involved for their help, sponsorship, advice, or simply for their interest in our project, which has motivated us when times where hard.
Please check out the media section of our website for pictures and video.
