Assemble me. Perform preflight checks then taxi to the runway!
The Ugears Mad Hornet Airplane is a "Medium" difficulty DIY wooden model with 354 parts, promising 8 hours of enjoyable assembly time. The airplane model is powered by a wind-up helical spring motor, often used in watch mechanisms and other precision instruments. Various gear sets transmit power from the spring to the aircraft's movable parts. The Mad Hornet features two modes: pre-flight check mode and taxi mode. Choose the mode by setting the rotating drum in one of two positions. Insert the special key into the stopper slot, then give up to 21 pulls on the winding string. Place the aircraft on a flat surface, then remove the key and watch as your Mad Hornet comes to life. In check mode the propeller spins while the wing flaps and tail rudder wiggle, before the aircraft switches automatically to taxi across the airfield to the runway for takeoff. In taxi mode your aircraft starts taxiing immediately, traveling up to 2.5 meters!
The Mad Hornet Airplane is sure to appeal to aviation enthusiasts, model airplane hobbyists, those who appreciate clever design, and admirers of "those magnificent men in their flying machines."
