An aerodynamic-control-effectiveness investigation using free-flight, rocket-propelled test vehicles is being conducted by the Pilotless Aircraft Research Division of the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory. Addition results have been obtained recently which indicate some effects of wing sweepback, aspect ratio, taper ratio, and section thickness ratio on the rolling effectiveness of plain full-span, 0.2-chord, sealed ailerons.
