Description

Report presenting testing of an airplane model with a 42.8 degree sweptback wing with an aspect ratio of 4.00, taper ratio of 0.50, and a 42.8 degree sweptback horizontal tail, and a 40.3 degree sweptback vertical tail to determine its low-speed longitudinal stability and control characteristics. Other variables investigated include the vertical-wing location, fuselage size, horizontal-tail location, and stall-control vanes on the wing.
