Re: Sparrow strainer stall conundrum
We think so..but remember that aerodynamics since 1980 has itself changed quite a bit, Brian. Aerodynamics is still an evolving study. Actually Manufacturing and Structures Design is also. Internal Powerplant design is also improving. AeroGeeks have learned a great deal since the days of Disco due to new tools like micro cameras that can be attached to birds.
No one knew back then how Peregrin Falcons could descend in an attack tuck at such incredible speeds. Impressive for a bird that is actually light weight compared to others like them. We understand more now. Still learning too.
So the answer is..probably.

My non engineer question. Is there an efficient solution with a change to the shape of the elevator? Would seem that if there was that it would have been developed a long time ago.
