I shouldn't think it would make too much difference Douglas. Peter himself does frequent the forum, so maybe he'll be along soon.......

I expect Percy is right. But why build it without flaps when the article says " flaps enable it to be slowed right down.... at half flap ...she'd just creep along into a gentle breeze..." It seems the flaps would be part of the models character.

Thanks for the responses, I may reconsider , I was just being a bit lazy.

Cheers , Douglas

To be perfectly honest I would not bother with the flaps. They do work but not worth the effort.

In fact I have come to the conclusion that I don't really like flaps on any model.
