    $\begingroup$ Actually, there are 3 ailerons (not 2). This picture shows them better. You can see the third one in your picture too. $\endgroup$ – Farhan May 13 '15 at 16:16

    $\begingroup$ I guess the purpose is discussed in the question linked. If you feel that the other post does not answer your question, please edit yours and specify why this one is different than that one. It will be reopened then. $\endgroup$ – Farhan May 13 '15 at 16:22
