De Rouge Elytroplan-Lateron biplane concept......
« on: June 01, 2011, 12:29:23 pm »
Dear Boys and Girls, here is an article in French about the unconventional De Rouge Elytroplan-Lateron biplane "concept"......

The article comes from the 23rd January 1960 issue of Les Ailes......

Wow, that is *weird*. I suppose you could class it as a 'canard', but the fore-plane would seem to lack control authority...

I almost didn't even think it had any yaw authority either until I noticed that the rear end of the fuselage appears to have the ability to pivot like a rudder.  How strange.

I am the happy owner of a whole book dedicated to De Rougé Elytroplans, see http://www.la-plume-du-temps.fr/2-28.htm (including one or two drawings of mine, if I remember well).
If you are interested... get it for Christmas...

Well it has a long enough lever arm... the big issue is probably the movement of the centre of drag forward... it might be more stable flying backward??
