52" Marston Pterodactyl - Rev. D

Design Notes:

The 52" span Pterodactyl is the most popular of the electric Pterodactyl kits, and the most advanced. Flight characteristics are smooth and predictable across a wide range of air speeds.

Same beautiful organic lines as the 80" Pterodactyl, but more complete and less complicated to build. Unlike the 80" short kit, this kit can be built in a few weeks.

Kit includes everything except covering material, hardware, and electronics. All wood required is included as well as two carbon spars, hardware, color instructions, and full size rolled plans.

Requires two small outrunner brushless motors (2208 1,400 kVa or equal), two 15A controllers, four mini servos, and a 2000 mah 3S Li-Poly. Aileron, elevator, rudder, and throttle control.

Intermediate/advanced building skills are recommended.
