Adding ailerons to polyhedral, please help.


I would like to add some ailerons to my polyhedral wing but not sure how to approach this. It is generally not recommended that ailerons add to polyhedral because it defeats the purpose but I was looking at the Elfi with ailerons and it flies well with ailerons. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Ailerons with low amounts of poly. work just fine - look at many of the gliders on Hobby Lobby web site with just this arrangement.
It seems the ailerons are usually in the outboard panels.

You didn't say what plane you wanted to do this to. If it is for the DuskStik and you have the polydihedral wing, I don't think it would work well because that wing is so stable. If it is the DuskStik, contact me and we can talk about getting you another wing to experimant with.
