Naw..go for the big one.

"<<I want one too!!>>"

Go for the big one in the movie.
And I don't mean Proffessor Falken's RC lizard bird in "War Games"

Believe it was a "pterodactyl Quetzalcoatlus northropi"

It was Dr. Paul MacCready/AeroVironment Inc. in monrovia, Calif...maybe he still has plans.
Otherwise you'll have to take notes watching Imax "On The Wing" .
(Think it was 5M ws with six lbs of Nicads and lifelike latex covering)

It actually doesn't look too hard to make. The outer panels resemble a bug wing with ailerons and a shaped TE. The inner panel is just larger ribs, and then the 2 carbon tail spars with shaped V-tail. You could make one!
