 Abstract: Flies evaluate movement within their visual field in order to control the course of flight and to elicit landing manoeuvres. Although the motor output of the two types of responses is quite different, both systems can be compared with respect to the underlying movement detection systems. For a quantitative comparison, both responses were measured during tethered flight under identical conditions. The stimulus was a sinusoidal periodic pattern of vertical stripes presented bilaterally in the fronto-lateral eye region of the fly. To release the landing response, the pattern was moved on either side from front to back. The latency of the response depends on the stimulus conditions and was measured by means of an infrared light-beam that was interrupted whenever the fly lifted its forelegs to assume a preprogrammed landing posture (Borst and Bahde 1986). As an optomotor stimulus the pattern moved on one side from front to back and on the other side in the opposite direction. The induced turning tendency was measured by a torque meter (Götz 1964). The response values which will be compared are the inverse latencies of the landing response and the amplitude of the yaw torque.
