I think that's all l I had to hear. That's fixes everything if in your
model the wing stays folded until apogee or the beginning of the
downstroke. Sort of like a swan dive, except no swan and no dive.
It can certainly be done that way, but it isn't necessary and isn't
Last question, how long of a run (in terms of # of footprints) -- to gain
speed to load the forelimbs -- before the leap? Perhaps zero for tiny
pterosaurs, more for larger ones?
Zero for the largest ones.
