This is a school project, it's the second model I built, I made the crank wire bigger so the wing range would be bigger than the first model. To my opinion it flies better than the first model.
The rubber that can be used for this model is changing on how you built it, is your plain heavy than you will need a strong rubber band. The rubber band needs to fit perfectly between the hooks, this is because it will unwind almost all the way. If you are interested in building an ornithopter you can use these plans from this website: http://www.ornithopter.org/birdflight If you have any questions about this project or about problems you have during building this thing I'll be happy to answer!
