Rudder. They're called drag rudders. Invented simultaneously by Jack Northrop and the Horten Brothers.

Hi Stupot46
I have never corrected anyone on spelling, and I'm not doing that now. However, the word break means to break something into more than one piece. The word brake means to reduce speed. You may be able to correct your subject also.

That's a great idea but for actual drag rudders. What you suggested is more like an air brake. That wing had verticals and other than stunt or slow down serve no purpose. He had them as part of the elevon setup. The Horten or B2 equivalent only use them at the tips for stabilizing at lower speeds. I bet same servo with the cut out. Rods on both ends would be cool.
