Flaps make most models more versatile and fun. My favourite is my "old" Great Planes 82" span PT-19. It didn't come with flaps but I added some inset flaps to the wing underside. Scale size, shape and position. They really transformed a nice model into a great one. A favourite occupation with the PT is take off and fly at full throttle and max climb until the end of the downwind leg. (Idea is to get as high as possible) Then cut the engine to tickover, apply full flap and adjust the descent with elevator so as to arrive at the runway ready for a touch and go then go round again! It's amazing how steep a descent and how much height one can lose with flaps!
Worth noting the model has lots of wing area and is lightly loaded. Maybe not something to attempt with a highly loaded brick!
