This study investigates the wing deformation of the DelFly II in forward flight conditions. A measurement setup was developed that maintains adequate viewing axes of the flapping wings for all pitch angles. Recordings of a high-speed camera pair were processed using a point tracking algorithm, allowing 136 points per wing to be measured simultaneously with an estimated accuracy of 0.25 mm. The measurements of forward flight show little change in the typical clap-and-peel motion, suggestingdoi:10.1177/1756829320941002 fatcat:e4nmz4xoajhnpbwuyrbt4igaqu
