Anyone here with details about the NACA test procedure for rolling trails? How did they measusure the rolling rate, was it initial roll or constant roll...

Thanks for any information!

If I recall correctly (geez, it's been a long time) they did both initial and sustained as well as different arcs and reversals. Trying to find out specifically (though, please do continue breathing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif). Different speeds were used, too, though most work was done a Va.


PS. Thats design maneuvering speed.
