How many Gs do Bats pull when they are hunting?
« on: 08/07/2011 15:16:11 »
Hi,

I am fascinated by bats and I see them flying around in my garden pulling some amazing stunts to catch moths.  Having flown gliders, I know how tight a turn is needed to feel 3 or 4 Gs, but just watching them, bats look to be pulling higher than that.

Can(Has) anyone work(ed) this out?

Best regards,
Steve.
