This paper presents the design and analyses of an unmanned aerial vehicle hybrid trailing edge control surface having camber and decamber capabilities. Initially, a brief introductory information were given about morphing concepts. Then, the structural design and analyses in in-vacuo condition are presented. The aerodynamic loadings were calculated at the morphed configurations, and these loads were transferred to the structural mesh in order to assess the design capability under the aerodynamic loading. It is shown that the developed trailing edge control surface can successfully perform camber and decamber both in in-vacuo condition and under aerodynamic loading.
