Abstract : The direct lift control system varied the droop of the aileron as a flap through a control knob on the stick. This system provided a more rapid means of changing altitude than normal longitudinal control. Direct lift control was found to be superior to normal longitudinal control for maintaining a precise glide path. (Author)
