The first step in the development

I hope that my comments above will to understand what is happening during the turn. In short, both types of turns lead to an increase in vertical and horizontal speed, but for a planned maneuver, turning with front free ends is generally preferable as leaving a larger “gap” in case of calculation errors or a sudden change in the situation. Unfortunately, the majority of unplanned, “panic” turns are made by just the brake calipers, which led to a considerable number of accidents. Regardless of whether a turn is made at the free ends or brake lines, whether it is planned or not – if the withdrawal is not completed before the meeting with the land, the consequences may be dire.

Turning the brakes

For example, it was previously noted that the cornering angle of a dome can be changed using front free ends. As in the example with the sled, pulling up both front free ends when approaching in a straight line can be compared to descending from a steeper mountain. Vertical speed increases. Higher speeds should create greater lift. However, there is a danger of dragging the front free ends – this will lead to a deformation of the wing profile and a decrease in its effectiveness. In this case, you get the effect of “spoiled profile” – your actions led to the fact that a normally working wing stops working. Continue reading
