◆ __defaults__()

def SUAVE.Components.Wings.Control_Surfaces.Control_Surface.Control_Surface.__defaults__ (   self)
This sets the default values of control surfaces defined in SUAVE. 

- span: the span of the control surface in meters        
- span_fraction_start: % span of the wing where the control surface starts        
- span_fraction_start: % span of the wing where the control surface starts

- hinge_fraction: number between 0.0 and 1.0. This corresponds to the location of the 
    hingeline, where 0 and 1 correspond to the leading and trailing edges, respectively, 
    of the CONTROL SURFACE (NOT the wing).
- chord_fraction: number between 0.0 and 1.0 describing the fraction of the wing's chord
    that is 'cut' out by the control surface

- sign_duplicate: 1.0 or -1.0 - the sign of the duplicate control on the mirror wing.        
    Use 1.0 for a mirrored control surface, like an elevator. Use -1.0 for an aileron.
- deflection: the angle the control surface is deflected. 
- configuration_type: the kind of control surface (e.g. single_slotted)

- for chord_fraction, Slats are always cut out from the leading edge and everything else
    os cut out from the trailing edge.
