of Radioguided Sailplanes
by Dr. Ing. Ferdinando Galè
book has become the classic reference work for the model sailplane
designer who desires a more technical explanation of aerodynamics and
stability and control than is available elsewhere in the model
literature. This is a newly revised edition which is in english only.
Aerodynamic Design of Radioguided Sailplanes begins with an explanation
and discussion of elementary aerodynamics. Each sailplane component -
wing, fuselage, empennage - is then individually examined in detail.
Having analyzed each individual part, a subsequent chapter discusses
the interaction of these parts as a complete sailplane. Chapters on
longitudinal static stability, lateral static stability, and
maneuverability make this book extremely comprehensive. A math and
physics refresher and a number of examples are included in a workbook
section, thus assuring the reader a grasp of all necessary elements. A
complete bibliography rounds out the book.
