Birdman! Hoax or Real?

Ok. you've probably already seen this on the Web and on FaceBook but there's a guy who claims to have flown like a bird with a backpack that powers a set of flapping wings from an ultralight hang-glider. The video looks real and I want to beleive it is real. What do you think? let us know!

It's really well done, but I really don't think the human body is capable of exerting that much power from just the arms.

Very cool video though. Looks real! But the physics just don't make sense.
