Published: 3 November 2023
...Roni Maya; Noam Lerner; Omri Ben-Dov; Arion Pons; Tsevi Beatus ABSTRACT Understanding the mechanisms of insect flight requires high-quality data of free-flight kinematics, e.g. for comparative studies or genetic screens. Although recent improvements in high-speed videography allow us to acquire...

Our work argues for considering the role of the abdomen in tethered insect flight experiments that use force/torque sensors . Taken together, the hawkmoth abdomen can regulate wing torques in free flight...
