The Pterodrone

For a new type of unmanned spy plane, an aeronautical engineer teamed up with a paleontologist to come up with a design based on the structure of a pterodactyl-- a creature that flew in the skies 115 million years ago. More on the 'Pterodrone' at Popular Science(1), Palaeoblog(2), and Gizmo Watch(3).
