Aileron effectiveness and dihedral effect were investigated for a wing-body combination having a variable-incidence triangular wing with modified half-delta controls at the wing tips. The test were conducted at a Mach number of 1.52 at a Reynolds number of 0.82 million. At the Mach number of the tests, the Mach cone from the wing apex was almost coincident with the wing leading edge.
