Abstract : A 1/6-scale model of a ducted-propeller V/STOL aircraft (Bell X-22A0 was tested in an 8- by 10-foot, rectangular, atmospheric wind tunnel. The investigation was restricted to the cruise regime in which longitudinal stability and directional stability of various configurations of the basic aircraft were studied. These modifications to the vertical tail and the wing trailing edge were investigated in an attempt to improve stability. Tabulated data are presented in both stability axes and body axes systems.
