Mechanics Lab Planes and Helicopters
Our price: $37.99

Assemble the gears, fix the propellers, and get hands-on experience with the mechanical engineering side of aviation using Mechanics Laboratory Aeroplanes and Helicopters. The models have levers, gears and movable parts. Learn about propellers, cogs, pulleys, and universal joints with the 10 different models.
Begin by detaching the intricate parts from the plastic frames. Then use these interchangeable and complex components to build a collection of flying vehicles. Each new Mechanics Laboratory Aeroplanes and Helicopters model increases in complexity, and in difficulty.
The two small illustrated manuals are honestly quite challenging, but the rewards of seeing each completed model are worth the persistence. Each manual is full of helpful tips, technical facts, and curiosities. Use those insights to go on to experiment and create your own style of airplane or helicopter.
While technically this kit includes instructions for 20 models, most students will find that the first 10 models, while important (how to build some of the assemblies) are a bit drab compared to the 10 actual model aircraft. After all, it's going to be a blast building everything from a simple glider to a helicopter crane or acrobatic plane.
