The flight of a bee

November 28th, 2005 | Filed under: Biology, Mechanical Tech, Video | 1 Comment »

Michael Dickinson and his colleagues filmed hovering bees at 6000 frames per second, and plotted the unusual pattern of wing beats. The wing sweeps back in a 90˚ arc, then flips over as it returns – an incredible 230 times a second. The team made a robot to scale to measure the forces involved.
