Experimental determination of the lateral stability of a glider towed by a single towline and correlation with an approximate theory

Bernard Maggin, Robert E. Shanks
Nov 1948

An experimental investigation was made to determine the effects of various design parameters on the lateral-stability characteristics of a glider towed by a single towline. The investigation showed that it is possible to obtain inherent lateral stability with a single towline system.
