Overhead view of a stiff wing collision that occurs relatively early in the wing stroke, recorded at 11,000 frames/sec. The obstacle on the left side of the screen is moved up into the wing path, causing the wingtip to collide. Note the pronounced yaw counter-rotation of the airframe immediately following the wing collision.
