I did find that if one sets the entire tailplane at an angle co incident with the actual angle of a high alpha descent- the controllability increases (NASA experiment.)
I believe that Carl Goldberg did this long before NASA, by two or three or four decades.

well iv revised the fus plan heres the result after 2 teadiouse hours of adjusting the cannopyt tailsection wing section and clearing up the plan and taking the odd bit out. also moved the tail wheel back to its scale location aswell as added the air exit to the scoop under the fus, rebuilt the sections that became missing when i pasted the new wing section in so i had to rebuild all the former and stringer lines. now my eyes are aching and im feeling tired so i best call it quits for tonight, grab some sleep get some jobs finished tomorow and hopefully this new plan of it passes your gues approval and i can start addapting and adjusting the wing plan, now means im going to have to print out another 27 sheets of paper for the new plan of the fus then a further 32 for the wing night all

yeah topspeed what sopftware are you using there

I have profili ( unregistered ) 2.15b version. I have discussed which version I should have with Stefano Duranti via e-mail.

It costs only 10 €:s.

This is how my plans looked 10 years ago ( with french curves and not inked ). Also very little understanding about incident..there is possibly 2 degrees too much of it for an E 203. Blurry ( sorry ) because the scanner cannot handle the pen grey color.

Default Horizontal stabilizer airfoil

Would any happen to know a suitable airfoil for the horizontal stabilizer for a 1/5 P51?
