Ornithopter Glider – take to the skies with a flapping successful flight.
This simple and effective glider is a great project to build. You will need to cut the wooden sticks that create the fuselage to the right lengths with scissors before assembling the crank unit. With a wet towel, wipe the surface of the flying materials and stick it together. You can now wind up the rubber band motor and launch into flight.
A really impressive little machine that doesn’t take too long to build and once made will be the start of a flying adventure – how far can it go and what are the best flight conditions?
- It flies really well
- They can follow the excellent instructions
- They can see how far it travels
