This investigation was conducted for the purpose of studying the behavior of the JN4H airplane in free flight under the action of its controls and from this to arrive at satisfactory definitions and coefficients for controllability and maneuverability. The method consisted in recording the angular velocity about the three axes, together with the air speed, control positions, and acceleration. (author)
