Outside of the assymetrical feathers (which is a drag-reducing adaptation, not a lift-generating one, although the two are related) there isn't any terribly good reason to assume Archaeopteryx was volant.


As a matter of fact a wing with a lift-producing profile (like Archaeopteryx) will create more, not less, drag than a non-lift producing one.
