Default whizzer thingy

One of the guys in my club likes to try odd-ball contraptions. I just happened to video this one and caught it folding its' wing.

Thanks birdDog. We do have fun and his last attempt at an ornithopter was even funnier :-)

It looks like an autogyro.

It probably is. It could also be a cake mixer. Just kidding... He doesn't live far from the flying field so he went home to strengthen the wing. I left before he got back so not sure what the outcome was.
