Flying Ornithopters by Thames & Kosmos

Availability: In stock

Hey, flight fanatics! Build four ornithopter mechanical models that really fly!

An ornithopter is a mechanical aircraft that flies by flapping its wings like a bird, insect or bat. A streamlined and durable bamboo and plastic building system enables these models to be light enough to fly gracefully through the air like winged animals. Powered by a wind-up rubber band engine, the wings of these four models work like propellers that generate lift and thrust.
