Description

Report presenting an investigation in the free-spinning tunnel to determine the effect of lateral-control systems using various combinations of spoilers, slots, and deflectors as compared with ailerons on the spin-recovery characteristics of a model of a 35 degree swept-wing fighter loaded heavily along the fuselage. Testing indicated that the ailerons were favorable for recovery when they were deflected full with the spin. Results regarding the effect of ailerons and two spoiler-slot-deflector configurations are provided.
