Fly Powered Planes

Flies generally buzz about and don't do much besides feed the local spiders, but here's a a couple ways to put them to work by powering tiny airplanes. Check out the models below from the 70s or the video for something more recent to show you that, yes, this crazy idea actually works.

This is sadistic. I don't know how anyone can have such little respect for living creatures.

This kind of tutorials should not be here, or if they found should be deleted. Since I think no one is here to learn how to kill or make animals or others suffer.

I am totally disagree from this thing . . . . .

Sorry if I am harsh but when some one do this kind of thing to animal I really can't see it and I feel very bad and sad from Inside.
dude. its a fly.  a FLY. if see one buzzing around do you baby it and love it? no you do not. i can promise you. you swat it, spray it, and smoosh it. chill out. if it was a bird, then i'd share your views

that is just cruel isn't there a law about not gluing things on fly just kill them i would die instead of caring a backpack of bricks on my back till i die doubt that he actually takes the wings/plane off
I finished watching the video well any way it's still cruel I should stop commenting with out watching the whole video
You're sympathetic to the flies with a name like 'bug on fire' ?
