A wind-tunnel investigation was made through a Mach number range of 0.30 to about 0.94 to determine the rolling characteristics of a three-winged free-flight type of test vehicle having untappered 45 degree sweptback wings of NACA 65A009 airfoil sections and equipped with 0.20-chord ailerons having various spans and spanwise locations. The aspect ratio based on the area of two wings was 3.7.
