PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Memorandum presenting a wind-tunnel investigation of the low-speed, static, lateral and directional characteristics of a model of an early design of the X-3 airplane with the wing flaps neutral and deflected. The model utilized a wing with an aspect ratio of 3.01, a 4.5-percent-thick hexagonal section, and a taper ratio of 0.4. Results regarding lateral stability and control with the flaps neutral, with the flaps fully deflected, with miscellaneous additions to the complete model, directional stability and control with the flaps neutral, with the flap fully deflected, with miscellaneous additions to the complete model, and oscillating rolling moments are provided.
