(3.2 " 4.08 lb.)
791 to 814 kg
(17.43 to 17,95 Ib,)
The test program included oppn and faired-over gap
(fig. 2), different c.g. positions with open and closed
throttle in unaccelerated flight, dyna.:ic pressure, eleva-
tor displacement, elevator force, and pitching, The force
on the stick was determined on the stand with respect to
pitching and displacement, this being necessary in order
to keep the weights of the control in equilibrium.
