I have a large Horten with 2 turbines that has flown for several years. When we first flew it we did not use the drag rudders at all. Indeed the 2 other Hortens of the same design flying with EDF power did not have drag rudders fitted. We have only really needed them to assist with landing and in very strong cross winds. They are not deployed both open like the photo of the B2. They only open up on the side that more drag is needed. They are variable in amount projecting and of course are in pairs on both the upper and lower surface.
