The effect on rudder control of slip stream body, and ground interference

Description:

This investigation was undertaken to determine the relative effects of those factors which may interfere with the rudder control of an airplane, with especial reference to the process of landing. It shows that ground interference is negligible, but that the effects of a large rounded body and of the slip stream may combine to interfere seriously with rudder control at low flying speeds and when taxiing.
