Re: 4 winged dino NOVA



We're thinking of the same thing -- relatively stationary posterior surfaces reorienting the force vectors off flapping forewings to enhance thrust.

; if I'm thinking of the same effect
that Jim was, then it mostly has ramifications for thrust production
from the wings (and less ramification for inboard weight-supporting
lift vectors), which would obviously be a flapping flight model.
