Not sure if this is the correct area for this stuff, so forgive me if it's not :)

Festo is an amazing German engineering company. They make production items that are based on organic things, like muscles etc. Anyway, this is an RC craft that looks like and flys like a bird. No props or jets, just wings. Looks really cool:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBWAcNJf5pM (go to the 2 min mark to avoid the nattering).

You might want to search youtube for Festo. They make some amazing stuff.

Have you seen the Gimball? It's a copter type thing, with the ability to crash, a lot! A drone of sorts:-
