Rūta Pudževelytė
Eduardas Lasauskas


A hang glider T2C 154 model designed with program XFLR5 pitching moment analysis is presented. The importance of the CG position is described roughly with explanation about the airfoil shape of hang gliders. Graphs of pitching moment coefficient with different wing sweep angle and twist angle are presented.
