    User27 replied to the thread Can we have too much stability?.
    Indeed, but balance surfaces are destabilising stick free - everything is a compromise. The aircraft I'm referring to had (variables...

    User27 replied to the thread Can we have too much stability?.
    I don't agree with you, usually low pitch stability is required to enable large control forces to be applied with managed stick...

    User27 replied to the thread Can we have too much stability?.
    As Billski alluded to stability and control can be a complex subject. In our aircraft pitch can usually be considered on its own roll...
