Gliders in Flight Stability for Straight and Level Flights
Gliders Long Distance Fliers
Balsa Glider? Straight and Level = Maximum Distance
3 axis movement
Movement in Yaw
Movement in Roll
Movement in Pitch
Lateral Stability: Roll High wing aircraft are naturally stabilizing.
Lateral Stability: Roll Low wing aircraft are naturally stabilizing.
Lateral Stability: Dihedral
Why does dihedral work?
Weight Uniform Lift
Why does dihedral work? Weight Component of Weight Causing a Sideslip
Why does dihedral work? Induced Relative Wind Higher AOA Lower AOA Higher Lift Lower Lift Rolling Moment
Lateral Stability: Types of Dihedral No Dihedral Straight Dihedral Tip Dihedral Polyhedra l
Movement in Yaw
Directional Stability: Keel Effect
Directional Stability: Weather Vaning
Directional Stability Moment Arms
Movement in Pitch
Avoiding the Stalling
Weight and Balance Center of Lift Weight at Center of Gravity Balanced, but easy to shift… VERY nose heavy! VERY tail heavy!
