Fly like a bird! Construct a rubber band powered ornithopter that flies by flapping its wings and simulating a bird wing fluttering sound.
The carbon fiber structure provides strength while keeping the ornithopter light weight. It is a very educational hands-on craft model kit.
Fly the Iron Bird a few times and see how long it flies.
Experiment to see if you can increase flying time by adjusting the weight on each wing and the angle of the tail. What settings increase flying times and trajectory? This kit will teach you the magic of this precise mechanism and show you how a bird flies.
Wingspan – 18.25″ Length – 14″ Number of pieces – 28
