Leonardo da Vinci Flyer

I was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's work with human-powered flight. Sadly, no human has enough strength to fly this way, but it's great to imagine. All of Da Vincis designs were purely mechanical, trying to replicate nature's designs through gears, levers and pulleys. What I tried to do here is to copy the movement of a bird's wings using nothing but simple mechanics. I think he would have approved.

Heh. If the laws of physics had been a bit more stacked in our favour, we'd be flying these things to work since 1523.

And I'd like to thank everyone for their kind comments. It makes the engineering headaches worthwhile.

Like many said, nice movements and colour scheme.
Good luck in the competition
