|“||Revenge will be mine! They shall be easy targets, frozen with fear, once they get a taste of my Flying Bamboo Bird of Incalculable Retribution!||”|
|—Taotie, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness|
As implied by the name, the machine is a transportation built for flight, and resembles an exotic blue bird. The machine is operated by using pedals to control the large wings which keep the machine airborne.
In "Fluttering Finger Mindslip", the machine was created by Taotie for the purpose of exacting revenge on Master Shifu and the students of the Jade Palace. After being outraged when the Kung Fu masters sent him a bill for the destruction of the Training Hall, Taotie and his son, Bian Zao, traveled in their machine, crashing in front of the Hall of Warriors. The flying machine wasn't seen again until near the end of the episode, when Taotie and his son used it to escape from the Furious Five after they regained their memories.
The machine later returned in "Big Bro Po", among the other old inventions the resident of the Jade Palace had collected from their many battles with Taotie. Bian Zao used the invention to help his father escape while at the same time protecting Po from Taotie's wrath.
