This video shows our LSD (Longitudinal Stability Demonstrator) in the wind tunnel. By adding or removing ballast the model centre of gravity can be made coincident to the variable pivot point in three basic positions: forward (positive longitudinal stability), mid (neutral stability) and aft (negative stability, or longitudinal instability)
