Mmmm... Let me take a look and see what it looks like. SOUNDS sensible though...P.S. An "inverted" rounding of the wing-tips (from the leading edge) would also be strongly advisable for a better tip-vortex management, IMHO.
Hi,I am a bit concerned that the spar is so far back. If you're worried about the outer wing twisting as the wing loading is increased (a classic issue with FSW), then putting the spar so far back is going to make it worse. The huge majority of the lift is going to be ahead of the spar, and it's going to try to twist the wing in just the way you don't want it to.
Fascinating... So FSW in and of itself does not make for instability. Whew... That's a relief...The X-29 was unstable, true, but not because of the wing sweep. The CG was quite far back, to make the plane as maneuverable as possible. My father-in-law didn't fly it, but spent hundreds of hours in the simulator at Grumman. He said that if the four computers went out, the plane would start tumbling in less than a second.
