Well, this is one way to pay tribute to a beloved pet.

When Orville — named after Orville Wright — was sadly struck and killed by a car, owner and visual artist Bart Jansen thought the best way to honour him was to send him aloft like his namesake to hopefully join the birds as a tabby helicopter.

After several test flights filmed with a lousy camera, the latest of which you see here, the Orvillecopter still has trouble keeping altitude, which Jansen says will be fixed by more powerful engines and larger props. “For his birthday,” of course.
