A fun and hands-on way to introduce kids to the physics of flight, as well as flight mechanics found in nature
Build four working models with lightweight parts
Rubber band powered propellors generate power to lift models into the air
Includes a 16-page full-color manual
Leonardo da Vinci was among the first inventors to learn about flight by watching birds, and when he did he produced technical sketches of an ornithopter, a mechanical aircraft that flies by flapping its wings like the way birds, insects, and bats do.
This kit includes instructions and a lightweight bamboo and plastic building system to build four ornithopter models, including a bird, bat, butterfly, and dragonfly. Wings (or propellers) generate lift and thrust by way of a wind-up rubber band engine, allowing the models to fly lightly and gracefully through the air like winged creatures. For children interested in aviation, this kit offers a marvelous introductory lesson as well as awareness of flight patterns all around us in nature.
Includes building parts and a 16-page full-color manual.
