Weekend Project: Build an Ornithopter (PDF)

Weekend Project: Build an Ornithopter (PDF)

For millennia people have studied birds, observing and experimenting to see if humans can fly. But people can’t fly by flapping no matter how hard they have tried. This project shows you how to build a small rubber band-powered ornithopter.(from Greek; ornithos meaning “bird” and pteron meaning “wing”)
