Movie S1
This video shows successful perching on plywood, glass and a natural leaf in real-time, followed by a segment showing the landing on a leaf played back at 0.125x real-time speed. The last segment shows two takeoffs to stable hovering flight from plywood, the first played back at real-time speed and the second played back at 0.125x real-time speed. A US quarter dollar is shown for scale.
