Yeah, I know. I'm actually JimC. Couldn't log in under that name after being away for several years due to forgotten password, so reregistered. I guess I'm a zombie too :)

I responded to that quoted post because of its mistaken impression that pterosaur flapping power was related to keel size. It isn't - these beasties weren't birds or dinosaurs.
JimC2;

I am guessing you may be the pterosaur expert that was on the ornithopter web sight years ago. Is that true? If so any news on Patricia's project?

I haven't heard anything from Patricia in years. I hope she succeeded. She was a helluva pilot.

"Sort of fitting for a discussion about dinosaurs, no?"

Birds are dinosaurs, pterosaurs are not :)

She switched her Nightingale design from a pterosaur emulation to a tandem wing dragonfly emulation. I don't think it went further than model stage.
