This is the best attempt at this sort of thing I've seen so far.

@gungasnake,
cool, so the maneuverability has been solved by separate motors for each wing. I see that the birds sort of fly a bit more erst when they do turns.

I wonder whether thse plastic solar panels could be substituted for the metallic mylar to make em stay up indefinitely.

Outfitted with teeny cameras we have a spy, or spring darts tipped with 1080-wed have a lethal weapon

@farmerman,
The thing which is interesting here is the extent to which they've made the motion realistic. This one might fool most people DESPITE not really looking much like a real bird.
