To evaluate dynamic behaviors of a delta wing at high angles of attack, dynamic wind-tunnel testing was conducted using a multi-degree-of-freedom robotic manipulator. The model was oscillated to perform combined rolling and yawing motion over the range of frequency. The effects of frequency and amplitude on dynamic stability were analyzed.
