RC flying goose

It flies a little bit south.
  [vote for,

Ahhh the days of watching geese happily honking whilst flying south.

We have remote/radio controlled boats,aeroplanes,cars,helicopters and even submarines.

The RC goose comes complete with flying hat and goggles, it is a exact replica model flying goose with its flightpath controlled by you as it flaps its way a little bit south.

You'd probably have to put a propeller up front ,but at least you get to fly a goose.

       Aahh[bris] your link suggests shooting them,i don't want to do that to geese, just fly one.

       Perhaps, but it is an RC Goose, after all. <posted back when the title was still "RC Goose">

       A few years ago, some scientists built a remarkably successful gliding R/C Pterodactyl. I don't see why you can't make a goose, but you'd probably have to use some exotic lightweight composites.   

       Nice link, [Bristolz]. I wonder if those things can mount any sort of armament ?

       If you made a model swan with a very long beak you could call it Conk-orde ?

       If they can make RC cockroaches out of living roaches with electroshock, why not with geese?
