Bat flight.

Hedenström, Anders LU and Johansson, Christoffer LU (2015) In Current Biology 25(10). p.399-402
Abstract
Bats are unique among extant flying animals, as they have compliant wings and an echolocation sensory system that distinguish them from birds and insects. Flying in the dark, guided by echolocation, has influenced the aerodynamics of bat flight perhaps more than previously realized and resulted in a characteristic flight that is now being revealed.
