I need this asap for my folio... Much appreciated. I'm doing a research section on my folio and I need to know the pros and cons for a straight wing in general. Everywhere I've searched doesn't seem to have the question above and is making it very difficult.
I assume you mean unswept vs swept-back wings.
- Easy to manufacture
- More efficient at low-subsonic speeds
- Unstable at transsonic and supersonic speeds (see Mach tuck)
More details about wing sweep (including forward sweep) that should answer your question: Swept wing
