    Microraptor F8 : First Flight
    microraptor F8 is original 3D RC ornithopter. As a creature connecting dinosaur and bird, microraptor is very interesting. I am producing microraptor. Most parts were already made. This microraptor fly (Real microraptor may not flap so much) and will glide. A management method of a flight is the same as Kestrel F6, Buteo F4, Falcon F5, Pteranodon9-7 (Rotary Rudder & Elevon). Form of feet is based on the theory that Dinosaurs cannot spread a hip joint sideways different from reptiles and Pterosauria.
