Abstract : This study represents an attempt to use numerical solutions of the equations of motion to discover the most effective control surface deflections for use in a delta-winged fighter for recovery from a fully developed spin. The recovery methods were tested upon stable spins since the stable flat spin is generally the most dangerous spin.
