Fly Aweigh is a delightful bird mobile and handy, precision postal scale all in one!

To make wings flap, gently pull and release suspended weight or hang Fly Aweigh where there is a light breeze.

Fly Aweigh is made from recycled brushed stainless steel. Fly Aweigh Pelican (shown at left) is 7" in length and has a 12-1/2" wingspan.


No assembly is required.

Suspend the label bar above the bird as shown with the wing hangers connected to the wing tabs in each wing. Clip the 2 oz. weight (included) to the alligator clip that is suspended below the bird.

Release the wings and watch it Fly Aweigh!

Fly Aweigh Assembly Drawing
Weighing 2 oz Letter Drawing To use Fly Aweigh as a letter scale, unclip the 2 oz. weight and replace it with a 1 to 3 oz. letter to be weighed as shown. Its weight is registered on the scale tab where it intersects the body.

Why pay for extra postage? Knowing what the letter actually weighs will save you money!

Wing tabs shown in illustration above are actually formed with 3 holes so as to allow fine tuning to balance the device. Simply move any wing hanger to the inboard or outboard hole to zero out the balance of the device.
