The Elevon 3 is a control surface — a part that generates lift and deflects to alter a craft's center of lift to aid control of aerodynamic flight within an atmosphere.

It was incorporated into KSP in version 0.25 from the Spaceplane Plus mod.

Product description

Made from the finest materials at hand, these flight surfaces are guaranteed to operate while attached to the craft. However studies have shown that a lack of atmosphere *may* slightly impede function. No refunds.
