Leonardo da Vinci developed concepts for a human powered flying machine late in the 15th century.
Based on his drawings from the Codex Atlanticus, da Vinci's Ornithopter is one of his most iconic designs.
This model is a realistic scaled representation of those designs and incorporates a bevel gear to make a model with flapping wings and a pilot with moving legs and arms. With all components included, kids can build an Ornithopter at home. It moves beautifully, encourages kids to explore mechanics and looks great.
- Assembled from pre-cut and pre-drilled wooden pieces.
