A “biomimetic” drone?

We craft our drones inspired by the bigger, older and most efficient engineering lab in the world: nature. We deliver drones that reproduce the flight of a bird or a dragonfly as its nearest. This method is called biomimicry, to study and imitate nature’s best ideas to solve problems.

“I just can’t believe how clever Tom has become with Bionic Bird in a short time. He’s now much better than me, and can catch the bird in his hand when he brings it back!”

Marc (63) et Tom (9)

“What is so funny with Bionic Bird is how it attracts real birds. C’est énorme quand même. Ca marche vraiment bien !” Arthur (27) & Co.

“I filmed Bionic Bird while attacked by raptors in Hong Kong Kai Tak RC Airport. It is a very small drone that flies by flapping wings just like a bird and controlled via an app on your iPhone. Incredible experience!” Jakson (35)

“We had a really great time together flying Bionic Bird. My daughter was so impressed I can control it in the sky, although it seems a “live” animal.” Shirley (31) and her daughter (4)

Designed in France, our products benefit from such rigorous quality control that each bird is a prototype.
However, some birds require a simple adjustment from the first flights: watch our video tutorials, check if your answer is in the FAQ or download a manual in the Help section.
If by misfortune your product has a defect of any kind, please send us a message. Our after-sales service is one of the most efficient in the industry.
