Build one of Leonardo Da Vinci's most iconic flying designs, the Aerial Screw with the 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 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:

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

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

  • 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!
