Da Vinci's Ornithopter Kit
Flying has always been a dream of humans, and Leonardo's fascination with birds and flight was evident in his studies of birds and different human powered flying machines. His Ornithopter design has captured the imagination of people for generations, and we have combined his cool flying machine with one of his bevel gear designs to make a neat model with flapping wings and a pilot with moving legs and arms.
This historically accurate working model features crank-operated flapping wings and a pilot with moving arms and legs. Easy to assemble in an hour or two, the Leonardo da Vinci Ornithopter Model Kit comes complete with pre-cut wooden pieces to assemble with pegs for extra strength. The finished product makes an awesome bedroom decoration. Leonardo da Vinci was a prolific inventor and artist who came up with new ideas and redesigned inventions from earlier times. This working re-creation is inspired by his 15th century masterful Ornithopter design. It also incorporates one of his bevel gear designs. For ages 9 and up. Size 24" wingspan.
