Doyle Blevin commented that I should really aim for 20 seconds to demonstrate a proper flight so I had another go today. Not a success but it was improving. Just like fishing when the best fish always gets away, the best flight wasn't recorded but I don't think it quite managed 20 seconds anyway. I was surprised the Pteranodon survived the day and was pleased my strengthening work did the job so we will get a chance to have another go.

Polystyrene pizza tray
Clearly many parts of the world do not have polystyrene pizza trays. They are just the packaging that my local supermarkets use for pizzas. I use them because they are free and would otherwise be thrown away. You could use any polystyrene or styrofoam packaging you can find or even buy foam board from model shops. The foam I am using is about 5mm thick.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
