The analytical techniques for evaluating the design and weight penalties associated with the V/STOL attitude control system are presented. A comparison is made between a V/STOL 200-passenger transport which uses thrust modulation of the lift engines for attitude control in the roll mode versus an alternate configuration which uses roll control fans driven by individual gas generators. The configuration using lift engine thrust modulation for roll control shows a 4729-lb weight advantage.
