This paper presents the results of an investigation of body-motion control of lunar-flying-platform configurations utilizing shirt-sleeved operators and a simulator with five degrees of freedom. The results show that lunar vehicles with moments of inertia up to 100 slug-ft² (136 kg-m²) in pitch and 300 or 400 slug-ft² (407 of 542 kg-m²) in roll should have satisfactory control qualities. The separation of the vehicle operator and thrusts jets from the high-inertia vehicle elements by means of a low inertia auxiliary platform resulted in satisfactory control in both pitch and roll over the range of equivalent lunar moments of inertia of 33 to 400 slug-ft² (45 to 542 kg-m²). A description of a number of useful variations of body-motion control is presented."--P. [i].
