Question
Elevator size less than the width of the tail

Does anyone know if there are any adverse effects from having an elevator that is not the full width of the tail's horizontal stabiliser? Apart from the obvious effect of less area having less effect.

I think you'd get a better response from the Science forum

Maybe, though they sometimes just post a link to several pages of scientific equations.

no, there will be no adverse effects other than stated.
P.S. if you want better answers than that, i suggest moving this thread to the modeling science as stated above.

GOOD SCINCE IS NICE BUT ...

at our size and weight and ability to enormously over power
and build to light wing loadings
