Fluttering Bat – late stage prototype

Sat, 14 Oct 2017

This must be mk X by now.

I’ve gone with a sort of teardrop shape and moved the face to the front of the body. 

…I’ve also folded the ears in half to give them visual depth from all angles. 

Fitted to a modified version of the Crank/Cam Essential Mechanism it does a beautiful fluttering flight!

Next – add colour.
