Default Sailplane Calc V-Tail Updates


I have reviewed and Updated "Sailplane Calcs V-Tail" calculations to accurately reflect Dr. Mark Drela's formulas on the "Tail Sizing Checks" tab for Vv (Vertical Tail Volume).
See http://www.rcsoaring.com/rcsd/RCSD-2004-08.pdf page 13.

This is an important update if you're converting a Cruciform Tail to a V-tail or using the Vv tail volumes formulas when designing a V-tailed model.

Sorry for the error, it's a long story!
