I think you'd have to separately calibrate the fruit fly's optic nerve 
to remove the effect.  A quick google doesn't seem to find any published 
information on the Allan deviation of the propagation through the system.

Do so and publishing the result would certainly confirm some folks 
opinion about the "nut" part of time-nuts.

(I did find data on nerve propagation in general )
