The Aerial Screw

This study of a flying machine with a rotating wing is an isolated case among Leonardo's immense corpus on flight, which generally referred to studies for a machine with beating wings. Leonardo writes in the note accompanying the drawing, "if the screw is turned rapidly, it will penetrate the air, and it will mount aloft". We can consider this study as the first idea of a propeller for a flying machine.

Leonardo da Vinci, probably the greatest universal genius of all time, died on 2 May 1519. Revell honoured the artist, anatomist and engineer with a selection of kits of his greatest inventions. The elaborate models made of the authentic material wood are partly movable and enable Leonardo's groundbreaking ideas to be realized very closely. Leonardo already had the idea of a rotating wing with the propeller around 1480. Our modern helicopters are still based on this principle.
