Abstract : Release of drawings to Manufacturing for fabrication is progressing. Aircraft weight remains within target tolerances though it has fluctuated upward due to adjustments resulting from detailed design releases and refined calculations The 1/20 scale spin model tests at NASA Langley, started in January, are continuing. The Free Flight Model Tests are scheduled to start in June. Phase II powered airplane 1/5th scale model test report data is being prepared for submittal as the data which had been retained at NASA for recheck has been received. DTMB has completed the rebuild and calibration of the 1/3 scale powered duct model and tests are to resume in early May.
