MetaFly: A Mechanical Hummingbird Soaring On Kickstarter


Oh My God…This is not a toy…But, a Unique winged gadget that acts like a bird. Yes, I’m talking about a radio-controlled propeller less drone which is lately surprises. MetaFly, a miniature mechanical bird resembling a hummingbird.

MetaFly is the result of more than 50 years of research and development. Different technologies improved from year to year and literally passed from father to son. As a result, we managed to create a radio-controlled device of a completely new type.


This mechanical bird completely repeats the movements of birds, moving in space with the help of successive wing strokes. It is controlled by the remote, as well as a simple drone. You can control it from a distance of up to 100 meters. The wings and tail section have a rather flexible base, which allows them to withstand collisions and falling onto a hard surface. The maximum developed speed is up to 18 km / h. At the same time, MetaFly weighs only 10 grams.

A small battery inside is enough for 8 minutes of flight. Recharging from a special power bank that comes in an extended set will take only 12 minutes. Without it, MetaFly is powered by a control panel that uses conventional AA batteries.

MetaFly is presented on the Kickstarter website, where the project has already taken off, having collected twice the required amount in a couple of days. You can get this gadget at a price tag of $78. Comment your opinion on this amazing invention.
