Can you explain what adverse aileron yaw is and what factors cause it? - question from Waseem
The concept of what adverse yaw is, how ailerons create it, and various solutions to counteracting it were
discussed at length is a previous question. The short answer is that
deflecting the ailerons results in more drag on one side of the plane than the other, and this difference causes
the nose of the plane to turn (or yaw) in a direction that opposes the desired roll. Please review the above link
for a much more detailed explanation.
