    yeah I just saw this last night... I am a big flying nut... and a mini/micro nut... and obviously bot addict... so this man is a god. I've been experimenting with building mini r/c ornithopters... many times bigger than this thing, with no success, never enough lift for the weight, and not able to climb and barely maintain altitude. The fact that this tiny thing flys that well is amazing, managing to carry the camera payload is just mind boggling.

    LOL thanks... I thought putter bot was one of the least interesting thing I've made, but apparently a lot of people love it. I guess it has more to do with the sport and idea, than how it looks, character, and locomotion. Anyway thanks! but nothing all that special compared to this little bugger... THAT is really impressive beyond what I can comprehend

    I will second that Eric.
    People yearn after this robotic dream, but you can't strip your life of all meaning, emotion and feeling and expect to function.
