Aileron or Wing?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering how and when to use aileron vs Wings.

But how to compare what do the stats need to interpreted?


                        MaxPower          MaxLift factor    thetabeginmaxlift     thetaendmaxlift

Aileron M:         1.600.000          160                            20                              25

Wing M   :         1.000.000          200                           20                               60


Which is better for what? How to use Power and LIft factor what does it say?

E.g. are 2 wings 'better' then 1 aileron?

I think ailerons are better for cruising at level flight, they have the least drag, but lose their lift if you pitch up too high. Wings are more forgiving when you are maneuvering.
