Body appendages fine-tune posture and moments in freely manoeuvring fruit flies
Journal of Experimental Biology
The precise control of body posture by turning moments is a key to elevated locomotor performance in flying animals. Although elevated moments for body stabilization are typically produced by wing aerodynamics, animals also steer using drag on body appendages, shifting their centre of body mass, and changing moments of inertia owing to active alterations in body shape. To estimate the instantaneous contribution of each of these components for posture control in an insect, we threedimensionallydoi:10.1242/jeb.122408 pmid:26347566 fatcat:usrh2pitpbbpdhymudsh4awarq
