I've recently been having an idea of designing a Medieval Flying Machine for a bit of fun. I wanted to avoid the standard Airship trend and instead look towards Ornithopters. Basically flapping wing flying machines. So far I've taken a good look at the mechanics and linkages that make them work as although it is a fanciful project I'd still like it believe that it might be relatively feasible. Doing this was a great exercise in familiarising myself with the Inverse Kinematic Rhino plugin, Bongo, and here's the crude but effective animation I created.
