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.
