Abstract : The patent is for a flight control device, adapted for use with an airborne vehicle having variable sweep wings, to control a spoiler on the trailing edge of the upper surface of each wing. The inventive device includes: an element for transmitting the motion and the power imparted by the pilot, or other user; a drive mechanism connected to the transmitting element; and, another motion and power transmitting element which connects the drive mechanism to the spoiler and which transmits the imparted motion and power to the spoiler, thereby causing the spoiler to be actuated and controlled.
