This report deals with an investigation of model tests to determine the most desirable winged GEM configuration to which the Curtiss-Wright Air Car can be modified. Tests on a modified C-W Air Car model showed that the addition of wings and nose and tail fairings had negligible effect on hover performance, but increased cruise performance and static longitudinal stability. Tests of a more general nature made on a rectangular model indicated that the addition of wings decreased hover performance and increased static roll stability.
