Wind effects

Lateral wind influences on direction not just by producing leeway, that can be easily handled by the pilot, but it also makes difficult or even impossible any maneuvers. This happens because, with a non compensated profile, an hovercraft can luff or bear away

For this reason any time a piloting cabin, a body or any other relevant surface is installed on a MACP, this has to be carefully tested and tuned up in order to obtain a behavior as neutral as possible or slightly luffing.
