SummaryTethered migratory locusts were induced to fly in an airstream for hours at a time, carrying on their extremely delicate hindwings miniature induction coils by which the hindwing movements were recorded in three dimensions.The two coils were mounted at right angles to one another on the central field of the hindwing, which is in close aerodynamic contact with the forewing. Each coil emitted three signals to define the components of a 3-dimensional vector. The movements of the central… CONTINUE READING
