Da Vinci Ornithopter


Da Vinci Ornithopter

Bring a Da Vinci-inspired ornithopter to life with this craft kit! Includes all you need to create a working moving ornithopter model with flapping wings and a pilot with moving limbs. 

Flying has always been a dream of humans, and Leonardo’s fascination with birds and flight was evident in his studies of birds and different human powered flying machines. His ornithopter design has captured the imagination of people for generations, Pathfinders have combined his cool flying machine with one of his bevel gear designs to make a neat working model with flapping wings and a pilot with moving arms and legs. 

  • Easy to make in about an hour or two
  • Made from natural untreated wood and plywood
  • All pieces are pre-cut and pegged for extra strength
  • Age Rating: 9+ While this kit can be made by youngsters starting around 9 years old (and younger), we like that it is both interesting and compelling for kids of all ages – right up to those in their 90’s! They can be made by beginner model makers, but having some skills in model making would be good.

Size: 31 cm tall, 58 cm long
