The Crossbow RC Ornithopter has been redesigned, giving it a more bird-like appearance! The original Crossbow was the first radio-controlled, flapping-wing aircraft kit with a sleek fiberglass body and modular gear unit. The new version has the same high-efficiency wing and reliable glide capability as the original. Instead of the airplane style tail, it now has a bird-like tail and shorter body, making it look more like a real bird!

Details can be sculpted onto the fiberglass body with lightweight foam clay, resulting in an even more lifelike appearance! video

Crossbow 2 ornithopter is a kit that requires assembly. It comes with clearly written, illustrated instructions. The Crossbow 2 RC ornithopter is recommended for those who have some prior experience building RC planes, and experience flying with ailerons. The Crossbow 2 RC ornithopter is made in the United States.

The Crossbow 2 RC ornithopter requires a 1000mAh, 11.1 volt lithium battery, a 10 amp brushless ESC, and an RC system with two Hitec HS-82MG servos or similar. A powerful outrunner brushless motor is included.

You will be able to adjust the amount of dihedral and choose among five different gear ratios. The flapping amplitude can also be modified as shown in this video.
