By combining optical triangulation with the comb-fringe technique and dual-channel telemetry, wing kinematics and body attitudes accompanying muscle activities of free-flying male hawkmoths were recorded synchronously when they performed flight manoeuvres elicited by a female sex pheromone. The results indicate that the wing leading edge angular position at the ventral stroke reversal, which can be decomposed by two orthogonal angular parameters (a flapping angle and a deviation angle), is well… CONTINUE READING
