Abstract:

The report describes instrumentation developed for remote positioning of model control surfaces during testing and for recording the angular position of these control surfaces. Modified aircraft actuators are used in a closed-loop system for the positioning function, and angle recording is accomplished by means of a potentiometer readout system and digital indicator. The rate of response of the controlled surface is variable. The recording system is designed to accommodate a wide range of transducer resistances. Author
