Welcome to my minifig-size Wright Flyer! Recreate the memorable moment of the first motor-powered controlled flight, when thanks to the perseverance and ingenuity of Orville and Wilbur Wright their Flyer took off from the test site at Kitty Hawk in 1903.

The model is fully playable, much more stable than it looks like, and features propellers that properly rotate in opposite directions. Alas, the rubber belts don't show on the LDD rendering.

The plane comes with the minifigs of Orville and Wilbur Wright, a starting rail like they used for their first flyers, and all the tools for field maintenance.

The build is tricky, but fun. The set consists of 224 bricks.
