From Arda Industries:
We present a replica of another aviation classic: The YB-49. It was a jet-powered step in the evolution of the flying wing, which aims to take advantage of reduced drag by eliminating the need for a fuselage and empennage.
This craft is remarkably stable and maneuverable, and it exhibits good longitudinal stability. It is also fairly forgiving to stalls and can fly at low airspeeds. It features a split-rudder system for control (see picture below).
- Slider 1: Reflex/Pitch Trim
- AG 1: Engines
- AG 2: Landing Gear
Cruise: Set Reflex Trim (Slider 1) to (-)50%, the plane will basically fly itself, almost as if on autopilot. Since the CoM will move aft during flight, adjust slider as necessary.
Banking: shallow, slow-rate turns can be achieved as in any other aircraft, through coordinated use of aileron, pitch and rudder. Steep turns can also be achieved with steeper bank angles and stronger pitch inputs. Rudder inputs should be gradual.
NOTE: Navball doesn't work well with this craft, but follow steps above for cruise flight and you won't really need it.
