that's indeed a nice model.
I'm just wondering how shook any passengers would be if hosted inside of the structure ?

I had the same thought. I imagined riding in it would be like going over a little hill in a car at high speed with every flap. However, I did see a video www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3QrhdfLCO8 from the back of an eagle that looked pretty smooth.

I hope that is the right video, I can't see you tube at work.
