Discover Flapping Wings!

 ARE YOU READY FOR A CHALLENGE?

An ornithopter is a device that flies by flapping wings. The idea of the ornithopter goes back to ancient times. Ancient Assyrians depicted God flying in a winged chariot or ornithopter about 3,000 years ago. Ornithopter attempts were made before Leonardo’s time, and Leonardo himself never actually built one — he only drew sketches. The first successful flight of a manned ornithopter took place in 1942.

Build your own ornithopter!

Experience the challenge of building your own ornithopter. You can start with a simple, rubber-band-powered mechanical bird, and then work your way up to a large, radio-controlled ornithopter.
