AC62 Wing, Animation #5, 7 July 2014 - reverse_twist_tack_Jul6a.gif

Full tack using reverse twist. Note that from the reverse position ("top flap" dial at 40 degrees), all three controls are then changed at exactly the same rate to keep the top of the trailing element at a fixed angle relative to the lead element during the tack. Because reverse twist effectively tacks the top first, so the lead element and camber boom are just catching up.

Use "Position" slider to choose one of 32 frames or "Delay" slider to change speed of animation (slide full left to zero delay for highest speed).
