There are many DIY genius of flyer, and the masterpiece came out in perfect built and is usually fly wonderful, especially those fly by remote controlled. recently just at the beginning of june,2012,the most valuable DIY flyer is Orvillecopter


Orvillecopter, is a work of art transforming a dead cat into a remote controlled helicopter, and was presented at Amsterdam's KunstRai art fair.

Orvillecopter were created by Dutch artist Bert Jansen after his pet Orville was killed by a car. According to media reports, Jansen kept Orville's body in a freezer for about six months, before taking him to a taxidermist and attaching a plastic propeller to each of his four paws. Then he put a remote control engine inside the stomach of the cat, and after a few false starts, the "Orvillecopter" achieved lift-off. It did take Jansen a while to get his Orvillecopter to work, as a series of YouTube videos shows. But after a few engine updates and a new speed controller, the Orvillecopter was in good flying form, as you can see from the video below.


The flying cat, has also been heavily criticized by Dutch animal lovers, and has surged by almost 10-fold after generating both headlines and criticism worldwide. In Jansen's case, it was reported that he decided to turn Orville into an aircraft because his pet cat and its brother Wilbur, which is still alive, had been named after the Wright brothers Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright who invented and built the world's first successful plane.
