Description

  • Content Description: Report presenting flight-test data contributing to the development of the present SBD-1 flying qualities based on the interest expressed in the methods used to obtain control-force characteristics on the Douglas Model SBD-1 by minor relocation of control-surface hinge line in combination with modifications in the aerodynamic balance nose shape. Results regarding the stalling characteristics, lateral-directional stability and control, longitudinal stability and control, and design recommendations are provided.
