Ailerons drooping
Author Last Post
The Robertson STOL  aileron droop is as follows:
Flaps 10 the droop is   8 degrees + - 2 degrees
Flaps 20 the droop is 13 degrees + - 2 degrees
Flaps 30 the droop is 15 degrees + - 2 degrees. This is max droop setting
Flaps 40 the aileron droop is 12.5 degrees +0 - 2 degrees.

This is from the Robertson Service and Maintenance Manual

The ailerons actually only go back up slightly at 40 degrees, not all the way back to normal.

As you pull each notch of flaps, the ailerons droop in concert with the flaps (although not as much). When you pull on the 4th notch of flaps, the ailerons go back to normal — e.g. no droop. The amount of aileron travel is also reduced, which can be an issue until you learn how to overcome it.
