Re: Reflexor, Elevator and takeoff/landing angle

Pitching moment does not increase with angle of attack. Please review NACA Report No. 824 or Theory of Wing Sections. You’ll find that the coefficient of moment is nearly constant across all non-stalled angles of attack.

The equilibrium equations can be found in any standard text on stability and control or flight mechanics, such as Perkins & Hage or Nelson.
