A ruddevator assembly for controlling movement of an aircraft refueling boom, comprising two ruddevators mounted to the boom, each at a dihedral angle of about 42°. Each ruddevator has an outboard section, which is an advanced technology cambered airfoil for high lift at transonic speeds, with a raked wing tip. The inboard portion of the airfoil has a forwardly extending strake-like member having a sharp leading edge which in planform comprises three sections. There is a curved forward edge section and two rearwardly extending edge sections, which in ope...
In a refueling boom having a longitudinal axis and mounted to an aircraft, a ruddevator assembly to act on flow of air over the ruddevator assembly to control movement and position of the boom, said ruddevator assembly comprising: a pair of ruddevators mounted to said boom at a dihedral angle to create both vertical and lateral lift components, each of said ruddevators having a spanwise axis and a chordwise axis, each ruddevator being mounted for rotation about an axis generally aligned with its spanwise axis, each ruddevator comprising: a. an outboard r...
