Variable Wing Area Concept

Hey guys!,
this is my final year aeronautical engineering project that me and my group are going to work on!
we have this concept of producing a roll in an uav/RC aircraft by reducing the area of the wing on one side while keeping the other side area constant or increasing it(gradually)
and using the flaperon setting to reduce the area equally on both sides for a dive basically how a eagle would do
so my question is, is this feasible if yes, what do you guys think would be the advantages over spoilers?
if no, why?

thanks!
