Very strange design, but I think it is nice. It doesn't gain altitude very quickly, but it does over which proves my wings are generating lift. Therefore, it is technically an ornithopter!

I like this wing design, I may use it for more functional ornithopters. For now, I have this primitive design. 8|

It's just for fun! Ornithopters are interesting concepts of flying, many early aviation pioneers thought it might work!

Search on YouTube "early flight attempts", there are lots of videos that show early 20th century ornithopters.

Ornithopters are pretty crazy machines, 8/10. Im saving the 9 or 10 for your next version.:)
This ornithopter works crazy :lol: and as you said it is quite primitive but it is very interesting ! 8/10
Well it is very understandable that ornithopters were one of the firsts tries of flying, because the nature always do the best version of a machine.;)
Wow that is cool! How did you manage to find that wing design? Like wild bill, I'm reserving a 10/10 for the next version with a stabilizer.
Well, I got inspiration from this and decided to make my own, using similar design. Now, I've built an amazingly complex wing but I cannot put the parts together because I do not have enough collision layers ... t would be a truly amazing sight to watch the bird fly but there are not enough collision layers to put the 4 seperate wings on top if each other. I just need more ... :'(
Very unique and interesting mechanisms.
Thanks ao16! Your mech inspired me.
I like it a lot but I don't think it's an ornithopter because it still works if you turn air off
No it doesn't :|
