2002 October. Paul Burns, of Aycliffe Village in England, saw the potential of insect power, conceptualised the BIOTHRUST propulsion system, and identified the Club Footed Drosophila as the desired quanta of thrust. A partnership between Burnsy & Dr. Diode AeroSpace is presently developing BIOTHRUST for both civilian & military applications.
The Club Footed Drosophila
Central to the BIOTHRUST propulsion system is an evolutionary throwback, the attack & lift fruit fly, or Club Footed Drosophila (CFD)
Back in the "olden - olden days" (please forgive the use of paleo-geologic jargon), no large mammal was safe. Huge swarms of CFD would launch from the filth and grab anything that looked alive. Hurling it from the sky, the swarm would return to their excremental lair, and wait for putrefaction to begin. Then lay eggs in the smashed rotting carcass.

Note the club feet, which enabled the flies to collectively lift mammoth
and woolly rhinocerous, and drop them.
