Fuck Yea Bees. . According to Laws, the fly. its might is nut in the right to its wingspan. lg. -naming than laws, tin bin anyway. Disregard Physics, Acquire Flight

Love how everytime someone says a fact , even a most random one , someone here has expertise on it .  " You're argument is invalid ! I've studied the aerodynamic laws on bumblebees. It moves it's wings at a higher rate than the other bees and therefore it can fly !"

Delightful indeed

bees can't fly according to the laws of aerodynamics AS APPLIED TO MASSIVE PLANES. at a bee's size, air acts more like a viscous fluid, so the laws of aerodynamics for insects work differently.

oh god, I just scrolled down and realized that comments like mine are being spammed all over this post.

I'm so sorry.

tl;dr

bees fly like helicopters

Bumblebee can't fly because he is an Autobot, plain and simple

That assumption only works if a bumblebee flies in the same manner as a crow or an albatross.

Since the wingspan is clearly not large enough, the bumblebee is able to fly by flapping its' wings at a very high frequency to generate the lift needed for flight.

like a hummingbird does?

Exactly like a hummingbird does.

Good job.

This is actually just an urban legend. It was hypothesized by an etymologist Antoine Magnan, and he "proved" it using flawed techniques and mathematics, and proved that they THEORETICALLY, should not be able to fly, but retracted this, as he realized that his statement had led to generalizations of how Bumblebees should not be able to fly. See Wikipedia's List of Common Misconceptions for more.


Pic related, it's what his results would have looked like had he used the proper technique.

common misconception.
According to the laws used to design airplanes, bees cannot fly.
Bees operate at a smaller scale and using different processes.
Bill Nye says so.

New research has found that the bumble bee generates lift on both the upwards and downwards strokes of its wings (instead of just the downward stroke like other insects.)
This allows it to create two times the vertical lift of a normal insect with the same wing area. It can therefore fly despite its size.

Fun Fact: Dumbledore was a word before JK Rowling used it in HP. It was another name for a bumblebee.

actually due to the way it flaps it gets 2x the amount of thrust and can fly
User avatar #47 to #45 - skeligandrew (12/18/2011) [-]
It turns its wings at the peak of the flap
#50 to #45 - John Cena (12/18/2011) [-]
it manages to create downwards thrust when its wings are travelling up. . .

Just get a camera that spins around a fan at the same speed that the blades are going and it will give the illusion that the middle is spinning.

no its probably wired up wrong
