Re: FOUR, THREE, TWO, ONE . . . PTEROSAURS HAVE LIFT OFF!
I'm in agreement with Mike, as usual. Kinematics make the quad launch
easier. I do agree with Dave that we need to get off our butts and do a
really good animation. Probably John's Anhanguera quad launch animation
could be most easily and quickly modified. John, you out there?

If it isn't enough, then biped launching is going to be even worse. My
calculations thus far indicate that quad launching gives plenty of
clearance but biped launching does not. I could be wrong, but I haven't
seen any structural or kinematic data to indicate otherwise. Either way,
ground clearance is certainly an important factor, and one that I watch
for, as well.
