Hi Wanderer,

I posted your question in the Starduster-specific part of these forums for better visibility. I would look here for the answer:

You might also try searching that forum for previous discussions.

Dave Baxter answered here (https://www.aircraftspruce.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3226), but I am reposting it here so that you get the auto email notifying you of a new post...

"Wanderer The published control travel on the ailerons for the Starduster Too are 30 degrees up and 18 degrees down. It has differential ailerons. A quick and dirty way is to check it with a measuring tape at the inboard side of the aileron to the wing at the trailing edge and you have already found the dimensions as it is 6" up and 4" down approximately.

Also the upper travel is a bit different, in that the aileron mounting brackets are on the top of the bottom aileron and on the bottom of the top aileron thus giving the upper aileron a slightly different travel. This however does not effect the aileron control or effect it adversely. Dave"
