Watch out, it’s the helicat!

As the old saying almost goes, there’s more than one way to spin a cat.

But until now, nobody has thought of turning one into a helicopter. This bizarre remote-controlled flying feline is the work of artist Bart Jansen.

Jansen said the Orvillecopter is part of a visual art project which pays tribute to his cat Orville, by making it fly after it was killed by a car.

Jansen had him stuffed and attached rotor blades to his outstretched front paws.

He built the Orvillecopter together with radio control helicopter flyer Arjen Beltman.
