.... Complex turns involve both translations and rotations, and are more subject to inter-individual differences that are not explained by morphology. This three-part framework suggests that different wingbeat kinematics can be used to maximize specific aspects of maneuverability. Thus, a broad explanatory...

...M. Rosén; G. R. Spedding; A. Hedenström SUMMARY The wingbeat kinematics of a thrush nightingale Luscinia luscinia were measured for steady flight in a wind tunnel over a range of flight speeds(5–10 m s –1 ), and the results are interpreted and discussed in the context of a detailed, previously...
