I'm trying to undestand principles of construction of fixed-wing subsonic aircraft.
I have already read explanation on things such as Neutral Point, Static Margin, etc, but I'd like to know how they are linked together, what are typical values they have and why, what are pros and cons of different schemes, and so on. Some of this can be found here, but I think it would be more sound to learn basics first, and start looking for details afterwards.
A good example of literature (or Internet resource) I seek can be "The Jet Engine" book by Rolls Royce. It explains nature of processes while don't digging too much in formulas.
