By sweepback wings/stab I am presuming you mean wings/stabs that are like this:Sweepback on the wing moves the center of lift further back..but if I wanted to do that, I could just move the entire wing further aft.
What are other purposes of a swept wing?
I read somewhere that a swept horizontal stabilizer will prevent flutter, what does that mean?
Not clear what kind of shape you are asking about.I read the AMA website and online, but I haven't found much on this topic.
If the lift force is dependent on the area of the glider, density of air and velocity of the glider, what kind of an impact would two different shaped gliders with the same area have on the lift force and velocity?
Forgive me if my jargon is a bit messy, I'm new to flying events in general.
