How to make an Ornithopter powered by rubber band

An Ornithopter is a bird shaped flying toy made from sticks and paper and wires. They flap like birds and use the beating of the wings to fly. It is a fun weekend project and cheap to make.

Now, there are battery powered ornithopters using electric motors too, but the first models were all simple ones powered by rubber bands.

If you are from India, you can buy an ornithopter online here on Amazon!

There are cheaper ornithopters available too !
Here is a bunch of tutorials on how to make an ornithopter on Instructables.

There are also several videos on how to build your own rubber band powered Ornithopter as below :

The above 2 minute video should be easy enough.

But if you prefer a longer one (From MAKE magazine)(with an ornithopter that didn't fly well)
