An experimental investigation on using Folding wingtips sERving as cONtrol effectorS FOLDERONS for a mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicle UAV was conducted. A representative off-the-shelf mini-UAV with a conventional configuration was selected. The main theme of this project is to utilize FOLDERONS as a control effectors mainly in roll to augment the control authority of conventional control surfaces. Furthermore, the impact of actuation rate on the effectiveness of FOLDERONS was assessed.
