Ricardo Hernández Herrero, is a naturalist and artisan.
His start in craftsmanship began as a hobby, trying to make the best caperuzas and the best equipment for his birds of falconry.
Shortly thereafter it became an occasional craft manufacturing the equipment to friends or people close to it and even to a recovery center, as well as making caps for a study of the imperial eagle carried out by the Ministry of the Environment. Between one project and another, the opportunity to make realistic decoys arose. Currently falconry has advanced a lot in materials and technology and at the same time the use of drones has become popular in this sector, Hernández himself has had the opportunity to try them after having used balloons and kites.
The next step was to make decoys very similar to the species that hunt, but that had lightness and resistance and that were up to our birds and adapted to the needs of flying them with drone.
In this way, it develops a unique product in its class, which imitates perfectly the natural model, but with a lightness and durability that make it irresistible for birds. After eight months of testing the idea and materials, the AirDrone lures were born, these lures are the result of a natural and technological study that Ricardo Hernández completes with an excellent craftsmanship that provides many satisfactions even to the most demanding clients.
