It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's...Their Lovechild?: R/C Bird

February 3, 2012


This is an R/C Ornithopter. It's a radio controlled flying bird. It flaps its wings and flies and you can control it. Models start around $230 and go all the way into the $700's. But that doesn't include the radio controller. So basically it's a rich man's toy. Me? I'll stick to tying a string to a june bug's leg and watching it fly around in circles. That shit will never get old. But that shit WILL tear their leg off sometimes, so be sure to stock up.

Thanks to Kyle, Mumtaz and Jesse, who have been flying these guys around in the park all day dumping payloads of white paint and berries on suspecting picnickers. Oh you bad!

    In case anyone was going to ask:  the song is I'm Okay by Morgen La Civita
    (EDIT: now that I listened to it... it's definitely not)

  • Morgen

    You are partially right..I'm Okay was recorded with samples of this song, by permission, that belong to a very talented Mexican guitarist (I'm struggling to remember his name as I'm typing, and it's killing me)..anyway, he licenses out his guitar tracks to sites like looperman, and gave me a portion of what you're hearing for my own song. Since then, the song has been re done in a piano version played by pianist and engineer, Jake R. Tanner and has been used in a suicide prevention PSA.

    I am Morgen La Civita, and I approve this message.

  • Emmitt Morgans
