While the presence of what appear to be wings does not prove they were used for flight, it is the best explanation.

Well... *Velociraptor* had wings, too, yet it clearly didn't fly. We don't know how broad these wings were, but doesn't the presence of quill knobs suggest reasonably strong forces on the wings, which in turn suggests fairly long wing feathers?
