It would have to 'travel', fore and aft, around on the body, as the apparent wind spectra could be constantly changing orientation.
wickerbills need to move from their optimal location?

And the entire surface of the vehicle would be involved, as we're in subsonic flow where a change in one location translates to a change everywhere else.
So wickerbills have to cover the whole envelope? Like dimples?
