I'd like propo flaps. Flipping a switch for flaps doesn't cut it for me. I was taught to handle gusty conditions by playing the flaps all the way to the ground then releasing them as the wheels touched. Can't even approximate that with a switch.

Yeah, most full scale planes have three notches of flap, but that would require a four position switch.

That's why I have a DSM module for my Futaba gear!

I admit it, I couldn't do the play the flap trick RC. I learned it in an extra span 150 horse Citabria that was used for aerotow at Wurtsboro a zillion years ago.
