A yaw control arrangement for tailless aircraft utilizing a plurality of rudder-like surfaces which are normally retracted into the surface of an aircraft wing and extended only momentarily on demand to generate a yawing moment. The surfaces are mounted on a wing surface by hinges which are canted with respect to the free stream flow. In this manner, the extended deployed surfaces are given an angle of attack to the free stream flow to produce a lift force at essentially right angles to the longitudinal axis of the aircraft.
In a tail-less aircraft having a wing extending laterally from each side of the fuselage, means for providing side-to-side directional control of the aircraft by generating an appropriately oriented lift force, said means comprising a plurality of retractable airfoil means mounted for movement independently of each other with respect to each wing between a first, retracted, inoperative position, wherein said airfoil means are located in the surface of the respective wing, and a second, extended, operative position, wherein said airfoil means are oriented...
