At the Red Bull Flugtag, held in Prague in September 2013, the Red Bull’s flying daredevils used a Unic URW-547 spider crane to help out.

At this year’s Red Bull Flugtag Prague 2013 event, 40 teams took part to try and fly using homemade human powered machines from a 6 metre tall pier. The designs weighed no more than 200 kg each. The event was watched by more than 30,000 spectators.

The 4 tonne capacity mini crane was hired from KMB Stavebni Servis, an official distributer of Unic mini cranes in the Czech Republic to lift each machine out of the Dvorak waterfront in Prague.

The URW-547 was positioned on a pontoon on the River Vltava. From here it lifted the machines out of the water once they had landed.
