Being a Bird - Witold Kasper

The Kasper Wing - slow, stable, highly controlled flight

Tailless aircraft closer to the configuration of a bird ... how to use aerodymanic phenomena involved in bird flight ... application of vortex generation results in extremely high lift coefficients . less drag . reduced power requirements ... controlled flight in deep stall by aerodynamic means independent of forward speed ... theory of stability ... -leif
