Re: Re designed midspan elevator pivot


Jay Scheevel
 

Basically, yes. Just removed the under camber on the elevator. The rest of the airfoil is unchanged (to facilitate only making a new elevator, not the whole wing). This is not the only consideration though. The change also has an effect on the pitching moment and the effective lift polar and maximum lift to drag. These all will affect the way the canard performs in flight. There is no free lunch.

 

Cheers,

Jay

I can talk more about this with respect to the changes in canard performance if people are interested.

Jay: Looking at your PDF, did you just smooth out the cusp or do something more drastic?
