Slow down and it won't flap ;)

Happened to my FMA Razor once. For some reason, a bunch of people were looking at the Razor while doing a high speed dive. People said it looked real weird, the way the wings seemed to be rippling. The refection of the sun off the wing made it look like little waves of water were flowing from the LE to the TE. At the same time, the wings were starting to flap.

I was mesmerized by the weirdness of it and kinda forgot to slow down and pull up until people started yelling "Hey! Wow! look at that". Had no visible damage, but after that, I decided on a VNE of 55 MPH. After all, it is a big draggie Foamie.
