Pterodactyl - Covering commences

The latest pictures show the progress of the Pterodactyl to date. With the help of a good RC friend Roy Monk, we've been able to cover the wing and install the ailerons. The wing has been covered with transparent gold Profilm. I just need to add some horns to the ailerons now and connect up the linkages to the metal gear servos which are installed into the wing. That should pretty well see the wing complete then.

As opposed to the wooden horns which were supplied, I've opted for some plastic horns and installed these on both tail control surfaces. 1.5mm Carbon rods have been used with piano wire with Z bends. I've opted for two Ripmax S100 servos to control the tail surfaces and will show pictures of these installed in a later post.
