Hi

I have found this presentation that I could not find on this forum yet:

https://www.nasa.gov/feature/nasa-to-test-in-flight-folding-spanwise-adaptive-wing-to-enhance-aircraft-efficiency

and

https://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/20170009544.pdf

on a concept for wings that fold in flight under study at NASA

best

Here it's.
Actually I designed this concept to use in condition "A" in takeoff and condition "B"
in landing,but what NASA done,it is wrong,there most not make the degree 90,they
have to simulate my form exactly,and I will send to NASA,they know me very well
and I had an account in their site,but I did't talk to them from many years.

By the way,

my design was a military transport,could carry overload,and the broken wings help
in avoiding problems at takeoff and landing.

And condition "B" is used in also in case of lost one or two engines,the aircraft can
make a successful landing by turn this edge at that degree,not 90 degree.

Hmmm, I've seen this before somewhere. . .oh yes:

(2:20)

And they didn't even need a special NASA program to figure it out.

But no one thought it was useful for heavy transport.

It was the heaviest aircraft in the world when it flew.

My point is they didn't need to build a special X-plane to figure out how to do it. They just said, "we need this" and did it.

Believe me,that's concept is perfect for transport aircraft,as I explained before,and it's
stupid if they ignore it.

it's bad if they don't use my idea in transport aircraft.

Saying it is your design is imho, wrong. Whether it be used on transport aircraft or not, the design was extant. A half competent lawyer would reveal a new method of sitting down on a three legged stool to you if you tried to insist otherwise. Not a personal or any other kind of attack but I have been there myself and it hurts.

Hi,

that's a best thing to employ the aeronautic in its place,believe me it makes for transport aircraft,and if NASA
tries to use it on a medium cargo/airliner as my design,they will see the benefits of STOL capacity for takeoff
from a normal concept and a very good and safety landing,they can contact me.

One more thing,I can fix any problem in design to be useful.
