You can do the same thing with lolly pop sticks and wasps.
We used to do it with broom handles and seagulls....
Interesting - I imagine, like the DC10, you needed an extra gull for the tail to keep her stabilised. Can't imagine glue for the feet, even super glue, would have kept her airworthy for long.

No you're right it didn't. Much preferred the twig 'n chaffinch design - we could use flour and water to hold them then.

What happens if you get an 'engine failure' or you get one fly producing more thrust than the others? Are flies educated in assymetric handling techniques?

I like the seagull version - get enough and you could launch carpet bombing missions on the local car parks.
