On the Flap thing ,these guys have, however i know from flying mytburd wrote:Thanks everyone.
My understanding of the anhedral is that it is more unstable, but reduces the risk of tip ventilation when the foil nears the surface.
Has anyone played around with a dynamic main foil (through flaps or deformation), rather than changing the AOA of the whole platform to control ride height?
think some they are - those acrobatic airplanes that need to fly invertedPeter_Frank wrote: Just like an airplane is never symmetrical - it will never be very performing if it was
from memory wash out main purpose is to control lif distribution across the span to reduce drag - the closer the lift distribution is to an elipse the lower induced drag you will havePeter_Frank wrote: The foils are not "plain straight" either - most have changing AOA out during the foil section (wash out), just like airplanes, for stability and agility.
