re:pterosaur wings & ornithopter toys



Silly question, I suppose, but I have to ask.

Aerodynamically what are the similarities and differences between
pterosaur wings and bird-shaped ornithopters (those wind-up flapping
flying toys with a rather stiff anterior spar and rather loose trailing
edge)?
