Been pondering the ailerons and there hinging.
I intended to use Rotary Drive System to operate the ailerons.

I already have a set for the Spacewalker.
This system was employed on my Kadet.
Why on earth would you put that in a Kadet, you ask?
Well I thought the system was cool, it eliminates external linkage, and I wanted to practice installing it on a less costly bird.
It turned out very nice and I like it.
The problem comes in with how the Spacewalker is hinged and the design of the aileron.
It is hinged at the very top. The pocket for the linkage has to be on the hinge line.
If I sneak the pocket all the way to the top there is not much meat there and it really angles the drive shaft and cheats the angle on the actuator.
So, was thinking about a bull nose on the front of aileron snuggled in the wing.
I drew an arc on the drawing of what I was thinking.
The second photo shows the proposed hinge.
This would enable placement of pocket in middle of aileron.
Straighten out drive linkage.
Also eliminate the gap at the bottom of aileron.
I know, this is a lot of work and is not scale to the Spacewalker.
I like a challenge.
Do you veterans see any thing wrong with this set up ?
