BirdKit's modular gearbox makes it easier for you to build
your own RC bird.
ornithopter gearbox is 3 inches tall. It's suitable for RC
ornithopters weighing about 1 pound (0.5kg) with a 4 to 7
foot wingspan. The gearbox is designed to fit in a hollow
fuselage, which you can build using traditional balsa wood
construction. A fiberglass body
is also available.
carbon fiber studs on the gearbox have a 0.240 inch diameter
that will fit our carbon fiber hollow wing
spars or fabric wings.
The gearbox assembles quickly with screws. The gearbox sides
are made of a durable G10 composite material, and ball bearings
are used throughout.
gearbox comes with a set of five pinion gears (16, 18, 20,
22, and 24 teeth) so you can select the best gear ratio for
your particular ornithopter. This allows a range of gear ratios
from 28:1 to 42:1. Use a smaller pinion gear for slower flapping
larger wings. Use a large pinion gear for small wings and
more rapid flapping.
RC ornithopter gearbox is provided with a powerful, efficient
AXI 2208/34 outrunner brushless motor. This motor should be
used with a three-cell lithium polymer battery around 1200mah.
your own ornithopter is much easier with this ready made gearbox.
