In contrast to the previous study that consider the chordwise and spanwise flexibility of the wing, the flexibility of the wing in this paper is mimicked as the passive pitching motion by connecting a rigid wing to a torsional spring; therefore, the flexibility is just lumped at the root of the wing, and the simplified wing is in reasonable agreement with the natural insect wing [23].
