Ornithopter Workshop

The helicopter has never achieved much success and … may be classes with the ornithopter as obsolete.

What is this workshop about?
An Ornithopter (from Greek Ornithos “bird” and Petron “wing”), a bio-mimicry of birds, bats and insects, is an aircraft that flies by using the same mechanism as birds: flapping its wings instead of using engines for propulsion like most of the modern day aerodynamic models.
This workshop encompasses all the concepts and principles involved in the aerodynamics of an Ornithopter. The workshop provides a complete learning experience to the participants.
Course Structure:
1. Lecture
2. Design
3. Fabrication
4. Testing
Certification:
  • Certificate of Completion
  • Certificate of Completion with Distinction (for top performers)
Workshop Kits:
