The Egyptian version of the famous "donkey + carrot" experiment: Can you feed a camel with an RC helicopter (pilot sitting on the camel) and thus make it move? Everyone's heard about this theory but no-one's actually tried it. And certainly not in this cool Middle Eastern version! So we packed our bags and flew to Egypt, home of the camel ...
We had a number of consultants, both re. Egypt and camels. We'd been in contact with a major zoo long before the experiment and on location we flew in safe distance next to a group of camels. The one least interested in the heli was the one we chose. Generally most Egyptian camels are used under "normal" street traffic conditions (traffic in Egypt is everything but normal, btw), meaning they are used to heavy disturbances all around them. The heli in this backyard thus was a piece of cake.
Final verdict: Yes, the "donkey + carrot" experiment does work!
