Default Crow-Sized Spy Plane to Be Modelled After Pterodactyl.

http://www.earthfiles.com/
“The next generation of airborne drones won't just be small and silent.
They'll alter their wing shapes using morphing techniques to squeeze through confined spaces, dive between buildings, zoom under overpasses,
land on apartment balconies, or sail along the coastline.”
- Sankar Chatterjee, Ph.D., Texas Tech University

Scientists are calling the proposed small spy plane a Pterodrone,
about the size of a crow, but with a much larger wingspan that reaches
nearly 32 inches (80 cm). This skeletal reconstruction shows pterodactyl
Tapejara wellnhoferi, which was the biological inspiration,please see link for illustration.

The spies are even smaller than a crow, check out the ForteanTimes magazine, FT231, February 2008, page 14, “They Spy With Their Little Eyes”.
