80" Marston Pterodactyl - short kit

Design Notes:

The 80" span Marston Pterodactyl is the largest Pterodactyl. The wing has very few straight surfaces. It utilizes a fully shear-webbed D-tube design with carbon reinforced spruce spars. The leading edge is 1/8" plywood, sheeted with 1/16" balsa. Airfoil is a modified 10% Clark Y/SD 7037. The high aspect ratio gives it excellent glide capability. The two-piece wing uses a 3/8" x 10" carbon wing joiner. The body uses carbon tube longerons that run from the base of the neck to the back of the tails. Wing area is 670 sq. in., flying weight is typically about 62 oz., giving a wing loading of 13 oz./sq. ft.

Short kit does not include spruce spars, balsa sheeting, sheer webs, or carbon parts. Download parts list (below) for list of materials needed.
