Abstract : Various methods for investigating the stability and control characteristics of the US2A were considered in obtaining a system that would provide a proper degree of data accuracy, data availability and system reliability yet still be instructional and functional. To this end, a photo-panel system with its various input systems was designed and incorporated into the Aeronautics Department's US2A, BUNO 136533. Installation and component check-out of this photo-panel system was achieved. (Author)
