Default flapping wing udf a serious doubt

Hi everyone...
In flapping wing udf almost everyone gives linear upward velocity in addition with rotational (beating) velocity. Why it is so? due to flapping (rotational motion), wont the wings and body taken up (lifted upward)? Why is linear velocity?

thanks in advance
