Product Description & Tech Spec

Product Description:

An ornithopter is a flying machine that uses flapping wing motion to fly, just like a real bird. Named after the last passenger pigeon, Martha, who died in captivity at the Cincinnati Zoo in 1914, the Flying Martha Ornithopter is a simple mechanical toy powered by a rubber band. To fly, simply wind up the bird and gently release like a paper airplane. When not in use, the Flying Martha is a charming companion displayed in your home.
