LS6 winglet project

It has now been a long thought project : adding up my own winglets to LS6a "AD".

The story of the design and corresponding detailed aerodynamic analysis has been presented during XXXth OSTIV congress in Szeged (August 2010).
Summary :
  • This winglet design has converged, using reasonnably simple method and pragmatic considerations
  • A CAD model, compatible with milling constraints, has been created by Flybiwo
  • A set of Navier stockes computation has been performed using TAU code (DLR)
It is now a matter of actually building and flying those winglet :-)

For different reasons (including funding...) the materialisation of those winglet is stalled for now. If you show an interest to it, don't hesitate to contact me !
