This video clip was obtained by the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter's black-and-white navigation camera during its 14th flight, on Oct. 24, 2021. During the flight, the rotorcraft reached a peak altitude of 16 feet (5 meters) with a small sideways translation of 7 feet (2 meters) to avoid a nearby sand ripple, before setting down again.

Flight 14 was only 23 seconds in length. As a result, enough onboard memory was available to obtain black-and-white navigation camera imagery at the high-rate of 7.4 frames a second.

The Ingenuity Mars Helicopter was built by JPL, which also manages the technology demonstration project for NASA Headquarters. It is supported by NASA's Science, Aeronautics Research, and Space Technology mission directorates. NASA's Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley, and NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, provided significant flight performance analysis and technical assistance during Ingenuity's development. AeroVironment Inc., Qualcomm, and SolAero also provided design assistance and major vehicle components. Lockheed Martin Space designed and manufactured the Mars Helicopter Delivery System.
