The main aim of this paper is to assess the dynamic stability of compound helicopters and compare their stability to a conventional helicopter. The strategy for the current work is to use an established mathematical model of a conventional helicopter (in this case the AgustaWestland Lynx), then convert this model to represent compound configurations. The Lynx was chosen as a well established data set [17] and model was available [18].
Interesting find Hesham. The above explains why the Lynx was used. I expect Westland/AW/Leonardo may have similar sketches of modified Lynx's and Wildcat's filed away  :)
