This ornithopter kit is created from a design of Leonardo da Vinci, who was long fascinated by the idea of human flight. This model features a pilot wearing an ornithopter attached to a set of functioning wooden gears for you to turn and let the pilot take flight!

This kit comes with everything you need to build one working wooden ornithopter model- all the wooden pieces, glue, and crystal-clear instructions. The ornithoptor itself is quite sturdy; each piece is pegged together with wooden dowels giving it more stability then if it was simply glued. The brain child of a high school science teacher, this kit is designed to both educate and entertain.
