That's also why many full size planes use spoilers for roll control at slow speeds and high AOA. It leaves a greater portion of the leading and trailing edges free for lift increasing devices, and prevents unintended asymmetrical stalls, by effectively using "intended" asymmetrical stalls for roll. Ailerons work better at high speed and low AOA, so most liners have both ailerons, flaperons and spoilers.
