Ornithopter is a bird model that flies by flapping its wings.
Rubber Powered Ornithopters are the simplest models yet challenging to build. They are powered by winding up a rubber band, and can be flown indoors. The challenge of building and flying these ornithopters is a great way for kids to learn about science and how birds fly.
Many people like to build and fly ornithopters, just because ornithopters are amazing!
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-da-Vinci himself never actually built one — he only drew sketches. The first successful flight of a manned ornithopter took place in 1942.
