Limit-cycle-based control of the myogenic wingbeat rhythm in the fruit fly Drosophila
TLDR
It is proposed that the mechanical forcing of a myogenic limit cycle oscillator permits flies to avoid the comparatively slow control based on a neural central pattern generator. Expand
The halteres of the blowfly Calliphora
We quantitatively analysed compensatory head reactions of flies to imposed body rotations in yaw, pitch and roll and characterized the haltere as a sense organ for maintaining equilibrium. DuringExpand

TLDR
From these considerations it is concluded that Coriolis forces play the major role in detecting body rotations. Expand
