My brother’s ‘Hon-Dac’. Its an old Honda Coupe (600cc) he modified with a pterodactyl frame, wing and nose piece. This was one of two pterodactyls ultralights he flew. While he was not able to get it to ‘fly’ before he passed in the mid 90’s, he did get coverage in an aviation magazine in ’93.

My brother once commented that he loved the pterodactyls so much because they almost flew themselves, they have such incredible lift.  He also used to cut the engine and just glide and listened to the silence while conserving gas.  He had a cloud form in his lap once, I wish I could have seen that!
