Larger PhotoGryphon Ornithopter Kit


Gryphon is the best flapping-wing model kit for beginners. Interlocking wood parts make it easy to build. The balsa wood construction is much lighter, compared with other DIY ornithopter projects. All of our ornithopter kits will actually fly when built correctly.

Gryphon can fly for half a minute, powered by the high quality rubber band that is included with the kit. This ornithopter has a 16 inch wingspan and weighs 1/4 ounce. Kids 12 and up can build these ornithopter kits with a little supervision.

These rubber-band-powered ornithopters are a great starting point if you want to work your way up to making your own RC ornithopter.
