I can't find any information on this company. I can find references to www.cadestech.com which is an Indian engineering company that does some aerospace design, but nothing obvious in connection with wing morphing or NASA. There is also a French finace company called CADES. -- Solipsist 15:07, 20 July 2005 (UTC)
- Hmmm... I think the Indian engineering company is a possibility, but it's not located in Europe. Since it's unverifiable, I'll remove the text, since by leaving it in and fixing it, I effectively took responsibility for it. --Deathphoenix 15:26, 20 July 2005 (UTC)
Following was removed: It was ussually done by pulling the braces or struts in opposing corners. Say that each of your wings is attached to the side of the fuselage by two braces, one near the front of the wing (e.g. attached to the bottom of the front spar) and one near the back of the wing (e.g. attached to the bottom of the aft spar). If you want to bank left, you can pull the brace near the front of the left wing (making the left wing twist its front down and its back up, making less lift) and the brace near the back of the right wing (making the right wing twist its back down and its front up, making more lift). And vice versa for banking right. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 08:25, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Montgomery's lateral control device
I have read the patent for this very patiently, and with a sincere effort to understand it - I honestly believe that I have got the general gist, and that the Montgomery patent, interesting as it is, does not actually describe "wing warping" in the sense of this article. The "extra sources" do not, to be honest, look awfully reliable either, among other things, they reek of "special pleading".
A properly researched description of Montgomery's method of achieving lateral control may well prove an interesting article in its own right - or be compared with wing-warping, ailerons, and other methods (successful and otherwise) to achieve lateral (roll) stability/control, in a more general article - called perhaps Lateral Control (aircraft) or something like that.
In the meantime - it's a simple matter of relevance. This article is very specifically about a method of lateral control that was very clearly invented by the Wright Brothers, and (incidentally) was very soon superseded. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 03:55, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
