Leonardo Di Ser Piero, born in Vinci, Italy, was perhaps the first European with a practical solution to flight in ca. 1485. One of his early designs was an ornithopter powered by human muscle by pulling strings, one for each wing. Leonardo did find out fast he needed something else than human strenght. I replaced Leonardo's idea for a crankshaft mechanism which powers the propellor and all three its wings.
The ornithopter comes fully assembled.
This ornithopter will not fly, this is just for decorative purposes. It must be handeled with caution. If you receive your ornithopter with its rear wing dislocated, you need to push the shaft gently aside to place it the right way. This is caused because of the printing process.
