Ornithopter geardrive utilising a 2.3Ohm 6mm motor. The motor is included with the unit. This geardrive is suitable for experimental applications and can be used with either single wings or double (dragonfly style) wings. The bore of the wing strut holes is 1mm and suitable for gluing in 1mm carbon rods. This kit also included the tail shaft rod (1.5mm square carbon) as well as a tail mount fitting.
