Re: Tapejara Military Drone



Doesn't matter that it has been done before, and doesn't matter thant pterosaurs aren't dinosaurs -- I'm glad to see Sankar doing it !!
I don't know if the group of previous builders they're joining is select, but it sure is small :-)

P.S. If they are doing a true membrane wing, they are in for quite a steep learning curve. If a semi-rigid wing like MacCready, it will be a lot easier.

To quote one of the articles:

"It's the first dinosaur-inspired aircraft, according to its creators."

At the risk of sounding like a pantomime audience; 'Oh no it's not!' :)
