Leonardo Da Vinci Helicopter Description

Build one of Leonardo Da Vinci's most iconic flying designs, the Aerial Screw with this Leonardo Da Vinci Helicopter Wooden Kit!

Despite Da Vinci's designs for human-powered flight never becoming a reality, they still defined him as an inventor far ahead of his time.

While it’s often called a helicopter, the lift in Da Vinci's design works more like a aerial screw than the rotors of a helicopter.

The Leonardo Da Vinci Helicopter is made from natural, untreated wood. It uses a bevel gear he drew in his codices and increases the speed of the crankshaft. This is evident with the rotating mast.

This is a great kit for all model makers and history lovers!

It brings Da Vinci's iconic drawing to life and is a great way to learn about gears and flight.

Dimensions of the assembled aerial screw helicopter kit:

  • W: 230mm
  • L: 230mm
  • H: 355mm

Included in kit is everything you'll need to build your replica Leonardo Helicopter:

  • Instruction booklet
  • Over 40 pre-cut and pre-drilled wooden & pieces
  • 4 eye-loop screws
  • Dowels
  • Glue
  • Sandpaper
  • String
  • Pegs
  • Sails

Recommended for ages 9 and up.

This model takes between 1 and 3 hours to make (be sure and let the glue dry as you go), and the end result will be worth the wait.

A beautiful display piece when finished too! A great option if you are looking for a unique physics gift.
