One click away from this is 
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2005/10/051018071921.htm. That's what I 
have imagined ever since the discovery of the hindwings.

From the article:

"It is intriguing to contemplate that perhaps avian flight, like aircraft evolution, went through a biplane stage before the monoplane was introduced, said Chatterjee. It seems likely that Microraptor invented the biplane 125 million years before the Wright 1903 Flyer."

Only, monoplane flyers were old news by 125 Mya. If the four-winged
configuration is older, Micro was a late straggler.

Why can't you be a non-conformist just like everybody else?
