Just because a Dragon doesn't have wings, doesn't mean that he isn't powerful. Just look at Glaurung. He didn't have wings, and he caused untold amounts of devastation in Beleriand. Ancalagon was the strongest of the Winged Dragons, so the two were in separate categories. In that sense, if Scatha was wingless, he could still be as strong, or even stronger, than Smaug, who was winged.
