I fly both spoilers on a Big Bird, and flaps on another Big Bird. I learned to land years ago with spoilers. If you don't understand how to use spoilers, I would put flaps on. Sometimes I would rather have a clean wing to thermal, than to have flaps just to land or turn better. On windy days, above 15-20 mph, I like flaps better for control.
Ray Hayes taught me long ago the merits of a clean wing for thermalling in lighter air. Bill G.
