Improved miniature trailing edge effectors for aerodynamic control are provided. Three types of devices having aerodynamic housings integrated to the trailing edge of an aerodynamic shape are presented, which vary in details of how the control surface can move. A bucket type device has a control surface which is the back part of a C-shaped member having two arms connected by the back section. The C-shaped section is attached to a housing at the ends of the arms, and is rotatable about an axis parallel to the wing trailing edge to provide up, down and neu...
What is claimed is: 1. A trailing edge aerodynamic control effector comprising: a. a housing shaped to conform to a trailing edge of an aerodynamic shape and integrated to said trailing edge of said aerodynamic shape; b. a generally rectangular effector plate having effector plate ends, where said effector plate comprises a length, a width and a thickness; c. a pair of arms attached to said effector plate ends at a first arm end and said arms are pivotably connected about an axis in said housing at a second arm end, wherein said axis is parallel to said...
