 Hello,does someone know where to find how the airleron angle is calculated? I mean the maximum deflection of the airleron wich is needed.

 google knows all.......http://www.flightlevelengineering.com/downloads/ProAdvice%203%20-%20AILERON%20SIZING.pdf Comprehension is not understanding. Understanding is not wisdom. And it is wisdom that gives us the ability to apply what we know, to our real world situations

 Hi CastMetal,thank you for this link! It is exactly what I was looking for. I used google too, but only found very complicated instructions and a lot of mathematical stuff ;)

 I just have a question about the calculation of the airleron deflection angle.Where do I get this data from? 1. Change in lift with aileron deflection: cldeltaa2. Airfoil's lift curve slope: cldelta3. Section drag coefficient: cdoIs it possible to calculate them? Or do they come from flight tests?

 1) dCl/da ... you should be able to estimate (calculate is too "hi' folutin'") similar to a simple T/E flap ... basic design texts (torenbeek, raymer) or Hoerner (sp?) "Fluid Dynamic Lift"airfoil Cl is generally available (for the wing airfoil and the aileron airfoil; also Cd.  look up the airfoil data (maybe on the NACA/NASA site).
