Abstract:

A free-flight investigation of two radio-controlled models with parawings, a glider configuration and an airplane powered configuration, was made to evaluate the performance, stability, and methods of controlling parawing vehicles. The flight tests showed that the models were stable and could be controlled either by shifting the center of gravity or by using conventional elevator an rudder control surfaces. Static wind-tunnel force-test data were also obtained. Author
