Flight-test information gained from a tilt-wing research aircraft has shown that design problems exist in such fields as low-speed stability and control, handling qualities, and flow separation during transition. The control power in the near-hovering configuration was considered by the pilots to be inadequate in yaw, marginal in pitch, and excessive in roll.
