|The Kline/Fogleman Airfoil
|This paper airplane is my interpertation of the Kline/Fogleman Airfoil. ?What's that?
you ask. It is an airfoil design that incorporates a "step" into the wing, that seems to
make a plane fly smoother and with less chance of stalling. It can be stepped on the
top or the bottom of the wing. My design is on the bottom, and is adjustable as well,
so you can decide how you want your paper airplane to fly.
A more complete history of the Airfoil can be found on this website, and if that is not
working, I have backed the site up here.
You can also buy a book with the complete history and many designs at Amazon and
Barnes&Noble online, I have links to the sites to the right.
Enough technical talk though, it's time to build great flying paper airplane!
NEW - I have just uploaded another design that has the step on TOP of the wing.
