... no evidence for a `constant-lift reaction', previously supposed to keep lift production constant over a range of body angles, and show that such a reaction would be inconsequential because locusts can potentially correct for pitch disturbances within a single wingbeat. The static stability derivatives...

...Michael Wortmann; Wolfram Zarnack ABSTRACT We simultaneously recorded lift/body weight, flight speed, body angle and 12 variables of wing movement for locusts performing tethered long-term flight with low movement scatter. The movements of the forewings and hindwings were recorded in three...

..., the locusts could choose their flight speed freely in the range 0.5– 7ms − 1 . At light intensities of about 0.02 lx (twilight), the locusts generally produced a maximum lift greater than 100% of their body weight. A miniature motor mounted on the force transducer could alter the body angle of the locusts...
