- Thus, lift forces exerted on the hindlimbs may explain why bats inspire during the downstroke of their wings and expire during the upstroke.
- Air compressed on the upstroke helps push the piston back down, minimizing energy loss.
- This limb action would be relatively inefficient compared with that of modern animals such as penguins, whose wings produce propulsive force throughout virtually the whole of the upstroke and downstroke.
- The video shows a bird with white in a big rectangle all the way across the trailing edges of both upperwings - white that is visible on both the upstroke and the downstroke - long wings - powerful flight - like nothing I've ever seen.
