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
