But to answer the other part of the question,building buddy Don and myself regularly kit bashed those strip ailerons into 'barn doors' as a matter of course.

We halved the length and doubled the chord to arrive at the same area.
We swore aileron response was better with the narrower ones,closer to the tip.

We used single servos,(one per aileron), and offset the horn closer to the inboard end....about 40% out..
And we always 'sealed' them..
