Wind tunnel test data obtained with a full span, two prop, tilt rotor, powered model are reported. Data were taken in hover, transition and cruise flight conditions and include performance, stability and control and blade loads information. The effects of the rotors, tail surfaces and airframe on the performance and stability are isolated as are the effects of the airframe on the rotors. Predicted rotor frequencies were verified, both static and rotating, and since they influence rotor response characteristics, correlation for stability and blade load data is included.
