Sir George Cayley

5. Sir George Cayley grew up to develop a model of feathers, similar to Launoy and Bienvenu, but powered by rubber bands. By the end of the century, he had progressed to using sheets of tin for rotor blades and springs for power. His writings on his experiments and models would become influential on future aviation pioneers.  Alphonse Pénaud would later develop coaxial rotor model helicopter toys in 1870, also powered by rubber bands.
