My later efforts with the Cox P-47 result in a much better aileron design that is wider and uses dual servos You have to start somewhere and the P-40 was the first to get ailerons and as we see they could have been better. The P-40 also uses a single servo ailrons setup that just does not have the deflection that a dual servo setup has.

In my P-47 build thread, Someone made a comment that the ailerons where "huge" on the P-47. As it turned out, they were just right.
