The assembly is movably connected to the structure and is configured to move such that the flexible skin forms a plurality of curvatures.
1. An apparatus comprising: a flexible skin of a control surface;a skin of the control surface, the skin associated with the flexible skin and located substantially opposite of the flexible skin;a structure located between the flexible skin and the skin; andan assembly, wherein the assembly is moveably connected to the structure, and is configured to move such that the flexible skin changes between a plurality of curvatures while a curvature of the skin, extending from a base of the control surface to a tip of the control surface, remains rigid during mo...
