    We apply eigenstructure assignment to the design of a flight control system for a wind tunnel model of a tailless aircraft. The aircraft, known as the innovative control effectors (ICEs) aircraft, has unconventional control surfaces plus pitch and yaw thrust vectoring. We linearize the aircraft in straight and level flight at an altitude of 15, feet and Mach number Cited by: 2.

This brilliant new volume provides a comprehensive history of flying wings and tailless aircraft. Designed and developed since the dawn of aviation these aircraft still hold a great importance today, with many aviation enthusiasts eager to learn more about these remarkable aircraft which provided the foundations for the modern aviation scene.

A tailless aircraft has no tail assembly and no other horizontal surface besides its main wing. The aerodynamic control and stabilisation functions in both pitch and roll are incorporated into the main wing. A tailless type may still have a conventional vertical fin (vertical stabilizer) and tical advantages of the tailless configuration include low parasitic drag as on the Horten.

A tailless aircraft is one which has no separate horizontal stabilizer or control surface, either behind or in front of the main wing.

I highly recommend the book "Tailless Aircraft" by Nickel & Wolfhart to anyone wishing to study the peculiarities of tailless aicraft, or is aiming to design a successful and safe tailless aircraft, whether it being man carrying, or rc model.

The reader, in my opinion, should have a background in aerodynamics and flight dynamics since it will Book Edition: 1. Tailless Aircraft: Their Design and Characteristics by Karl L.E.

The tailless aircraft in use today demonstrate how the problems of tailless designs can be overcome and advantages exploited. For directional control, the split aileron is an effective solution. It is not, however, considered superior to the fin and rudder system as far as aerodynamics goes; this is proven by their use in delta wing aircraft.

The feasibility of a unique semi-tailless aircraft configuration that utilizes a split empennage, mounted outboard and aft of the main wing trailing edge (“scissor-tail”) is examined.

The most successful tailless configuration has been the tailless delta, especially for combat aircraft, though the most familiar tailless delta is the Concorde airliner. NASA has recently used the 'tailless' description for the novel X research aircraft which has a.

Introduction. I always wanted to have some experimental aircraft in my RAF collection. Last year I had the chance to obtain the following book: British Prototype Aircraft by Ray Sturtivant.

It is this book that allowed me to learn about some of the most interesting experimental aircraft in the RAF history, those in the series of tailless and canard configuration experiments. In fact, it was the ONE book that showed up in nearly every bibleography.

In one sense, the book succeeds. The authors are obviously well-versed in the field and possess a practical, first-hand knowledge as well that can give the thoughtful reader a solid insight into the special problems and conce I have very mixed emotions about this book/5.

It would consider factors specific to tailless aircraft, such as stability through sweep and reflex airfoils. Tailless planes are inherently unstable and difficult to control.

Tailless aircraft are lighter because they don’t have a tail and because they need less weight up front without a tail. These aircraft also have smaller profiles, which decrease the amount of drag produced by the aircraft and create a smaller radar cross-section for more stealth.
