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

Under the dome “pilot”

Many skydivers believe that the angle of attack is equal to the angle at which the dome is located to the horizon. This is not true! The angle of attack is the angle between the plane of the wing chord and the direction of relative flow. The angle of attack is changed by turning the wing relative to the relative flow. The aircraft is using tail. Since there is no such thing on the dome, the only way to change the angle of its attack is to operate the control lines. Continue reading
