Re: Campbell's even crazier than a MANIAC? (archeopteryx climbing)



This sounds like a description of a mechanism for combined production of command authority in yaw together with some supplemental ability to control pitch. If so, you wouldn't expect the hindlimb eathers to point laterally though.

So, yes, you should not have completely-splayed out hindlimbs, but each hindlimb may have formed a, say, 90° angle or somewhat more (not know of quantities) with the other in
anterior view. Not the best for gliding but best than strictly parasagittal limbs.
