-- unless there was thrust at some vector to stabilize it, the silly thing would simply tumble
SOMETHING must keep a non symmetrical foil from pitching .
No trim drag ?
On a more realistic note - i flew my new little VisionAire yesterday - it has 3 axis stabilization which is so well integrated that you don't even know it's there - the plane simply flies with no twitchiness and -once pointed or rolled to an attitude- remains there till you deliberately change it- uncanny!!
just like Uncle Sams multimillion dollar stuff.
The times -- they are a changing----
