Orizuru, a remote controlled origami crane that can fly

A super lightweight, flying symbol of peace, this RC origami crane is made from paper, carbon tubes, 3D-printed nylon filament, and an energy-efficient microcomputer. Its wingspan is 27.6 inches (70 cm), and only weighs 1.1 oz (31 gm)… and that includes the batteries and sensors. The flying Orizuru, or folded crane, was demo’d at the CEATEC 2015 trade show in Tokyo.
