I'm not certain if it would flip it into a spin, but it might. Washout on the tips perhaps?That's an interesting concept, Sockmonkey, and not unlike what I was describing with elevons on the front wing (though I was still going to have a conventional rudder). The question is what happens if you stall the front wing in a turn so only one half stalls? That seems like a possible stall-spin scenario.
Junkers flaps are essentially a separate surface from the wing so they can't actually stall the wing they're attached to unless you use them to pitch the whole plane up to a high enough AOA that the wing would stall anyhow.My understanding was that a lowered control surfaces increases lift by increasing the effective angle of attack of the control surface, which seems to suggest that the part of a wing with a lowered control surface would stall before the rest of that same wing.
Really? Is there a diagram somewhere I can look at to see why that is?The Savannah and CH701 have Junkers flaperons, the Junkers flaperons are split in the middle of each wing and the angle of incidence reduced on the outward portion to delay the stall at the tip. Junkers ailerons will induce the wing to stall, they can effectively increase the angle of attack of the wing.
Sure, but the airfoil is no longer limited to 14 degrees (or whatever), but the max AoA increases.
Depends on what side of the boat you are on.Just speculation: with the Junkers flap down, more list is being created
