Free-flight investigation to determine force and hinge-moment characteristics at zero angle of attack of a 60 degrees sweptback half-delta tip control on a 60 degrees sweptback delta wing at Mach numbers between 0.68 and 1.44

A free-flight investigation of two rocket-powered control research models has been conducted to determine the force and hinge-moment characteristics, at zero angle of attack, of a half-delta tip control on a delta wing. Each of the models consisted of a cylindrical body, with ogival nose and tail sections, equipped with a cruciform arrangement of 60 degree sweptback delta wings, the wing panels in one plane being equipped with half-delta tip controls.
