differential tailplane

differential tailplane
A tailplane that both acts as an elevator and provides some or all roll control. When acting as an elevator, both tailplanes go up or down equally. Their travel is differential when they provide roll control.
Port spoiler is deflected by a higher angle than the starboard spoiler. Greater amount of lift is ‘spoilt’ on the port wing than the starboard wing. The aircraft thus rolls to the left.
