Jones investigated V-shaped tailless UAVs with a sweepback
angle of 45[degrees] on the leading edge and found that ground effects rise pitching moment and slope of lift curve and reduces induced drag, while the total drag on the UAV increases .
This generates the angle of sweepback
(2001) Improved accuracy and reliability of sweepback
angle, pitch angle and hand velocity calculations in swimming.
While occupants get quite decent legroom in the front and rear compartments, the GEN-2's sweepback
styling is likely to inhibit some rear seat passengers.
At the same time, McDonnell Douglas made the wing thicker--the original Hornet wing had always wrestled with a lack of stiffness, which made its outer pylons of limited use--and increased its sweepback
to counter the resulting increase in drag.
Different cases are studied including gust frequency and wing sweepback
