|Infos techniques||The first change to be made was the relocalion of the tow hooks to eliminate the kiteing affect. This was accomplished by raising them approximately 5/1 to bring them closer to the center of gravity.|
The previous lack of directional stability had required the pilot to be on his toes all the time. To rectify this situation the fuselage length was increased bv 9 inches and the hood given a dorsal fin look. A new and larger set of fins were constructed which replaced the drag flaps with differential rudders of double the previous area. Also, the independently operating rudder pedal gave way in favor of the conventional setup. During previous take-offs I often found myself sitting there with both rudder pedals depre ed, which added drag besides being disconcerting.
|Histoire résumée||Because college studies kept me busy throughout 1958, modifications were not completed until September of 1959.|
