Need help with ailerons

This message from Renzi6669@aol.com brought to you by EFLIGHT!

Working on a fun fly plane, scratch built, built up wing, profile fuze. The
wing has a clarky airfoil, 10" cord, 35" span, full lenght ailerons. My
question....Is it OK to have the ailerons ( flat 1/4" balsa) past the TE vs
"built" into the wing like on Cubs, trainers, or any plane that has a flat bottom
airfoil??? My Great Planes Slinger flying wing ( flat bottom ) is an example
of the ailerons past the TE of the wing. I would imagine that it is ok. If
so, then what with ( 1" 1 1/2" 2" ) would be ideal....would like good
manuvability at slow flying speeds.....???

Thanks
Mike R

I'd go with 2" myself.

Mike,

I've built dozens of models with wings like that. Works just fine. As
for the correct chord for the ailerons, I'd shoot for 1.5 inch as a
minimum, and would probably use 2 inches at the root, tapering to 1.5
inches at the tips. Give you good maneuverability with a slightly
tapered planform.
