In flying insects control of power by alteration of the setting of the wing relative to the air was suggested for Drosophila by Chadwick (1951), and in Schistocerca Weis-Fogh (19566) discovered that lift was kept constant during extended flights and calculated that this was achieved by active regulation of wing twisting. Wilson & Weis-Fogh (1962) were able(More)
