A mathematical model of the rolling dynamics of a flexible wing is derived by experimental measurements and 3D potential flow analysis. Based on the mathematical model which includes one aeroelastic parameter, control laws are designed which almost completely eliminate the problem of reduced aileron efficiency for increasing airspeed. Finally, the control laws are tested on the model in the wind tunnel, and good correlation with computer simulations is achieved, except when a structural mode is excited.
