Drag Polar Drag polar is a way to represent the coefficient of lift and coefficient of drag of the airplane. For XG Endeavour, NACA 2414 was used for the main airfoil and the drag polar is shown below. Figure. Drag Polar for NACA 2414. Compare to XG Endeavour’s Reynolds number, which is around 1.02e6, purple line of the drag polar was used for the drag polar of XG Endeavour.

Unformatted text preview: For the landing, parasite drag and induced drag at the landing were added to the cruise drag, while for the take off, parasite drag and induced drag at the takeoff were added to the cruise drag. As the result, the drag polar at takeoff, cruise and landing are shown below. Figure 2. Drag Polar of XG Endeavour...
