Burning to find out more information about the Avibird? Feel free to call or email with any questions you have. We’ve answered the most common questions below. 

Modelled on the Peregrine falcon in size and colour and with the advantage of our CAA-trained pilots, the Avibird mimics the way in which a real falcon hunts. Birds see the silhouette of the Falcon and believe the area in which they are is unsafe due to a natural predator. The Avibird then stoops an attack and drives the birds away from their roosting/feeding areas.

With skilled pilots on the controls, individual, flocks and split flocks can be directed in any direction, giving us the ability to manage the site with total efficiency.

One of the genius technological inputs is FHS, A Frequency Hopping System, to ensure that all channels are free of interference and we use frequencies at very low power.

We can pre-program the Avibird with a bespoke GPS flight path, even varying altitude and speed.

In the near impossible event that communication is lost, the Avibird is equipped with a return home emergency override (failsafe).

We have inbuilt black box technology logging every second of the flight data.

Just like their live counterparts, the Avibird does not fly in high winds or hard rain, although it does have built in auto-stabilisation to cope with most weather conditions.

Due to the low weight material used and low flight speed, the model creates negligible kinetic energy.

Depending on the site and bird numbers, 50% of flocks will be moved within 90 seconds and large flocks will be fully dispersed within 5 minutes of flying the Avibird.

Due to the birds being comfortable living/feeding on the site historically, they will return, so with aggressive and consistent flights, the birds lifestyle habit will be broken and they will disperse to safer areas, where there is no threat of a predator.

We have 2 models, one model with a built in 4k HDR camera and for sensitive areas, a model that does not carry the camera. Both log all flight data.
