A flight control system for an airfoil comprises a control surface, a chamber connecting the control surface to the airfoil, and a pneumatic mechanism fluidly connected to the chamber. The chamber may be comprised of at least two cells that may be fluidly separated by a membrane. The pneumatic mechanism is configured to provide differential pressure to the cells in order to alternately increase volume/pressure of the cells to cause deflection of the control surface. The cells may have a stretchable outer surface to allow for changes in the length of the ...


1. A method for controlling a control surface of an airfoil comprising: providing a first pressure to a first cell;providing a second pressure to a second cell;changing one of the first pressure, the second pressure, and the first pressure and the second pressure such that the second pressure is less than the first pressure; and deflecting the control surface in a direction toward the second cell having a pressure lower than the first cell, the first cell and the second cell being separated by a substantially nonstretchable membrane positioned between th...
