...Natsuki Harada; Takuma Oura; Masateru Maeda; Yayi Shen; Dale M. Kikuchi; Hiroto Tanaka ABSTRACT Penguins are adapted to underwater life and have excellent swimming abilities. Although previous motion analyses revealed their basic swimming characteristics, the details of the 3D wing kinematics, wing...

... horizontal). In the present paper, wing and body kinematics of four freely hovering true hoverflies were measured using three-dimensional high-speed video. The measured wing kinematics was used in a Navier–Stokes solver to compute the aerodynamic forces of the insects. The stroke amplitude of the hoverflies...

... of the fruit fly is purely innate or improves with practice. We addressed this question by comparing a variety of flight parameters such as wing kinematics, flight speed and acceleration, yaw torque-equivalent stroke amplitude responses during object tracking, and saccadic turning angles and rates between...
