Aerodynamic control apparatus which deflects a control-surface-member into the airstream for creating drag on an aircraft. This drag flap mechanism includes a strut and hinge plate which together constrain the control-surface-member to move in a coupled manner about mutually perpendicular axes. There is an actuator from the controls of the pilot which moves the hinge plate which in turn moves the control-surface-member in that coupled manner. It moves between a fully feathered position presenting minimal resistance to the airstream and a fully operative ...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. Aerodynamic control apparatus for creating drag on an aircraft subjected to an airstream, the control apparatus comprising:a drag flap mechanism including:at least one control surface member being pivotally mounted on the wing for coupled movement about mutually perpendicular first and second axes, the first axis being generally parallel to a roll axis of the aircraft, the second axis being generally parallel to a yaw axis of the aircraft, the at least one control member being movable between a fully feathered position prese...
