I've have nearly every foam Cessna 172/182 available including both the 40" and 55" FMS planes.

The Dynam remains one of my favorites due to its generally robust construction, very light weight, excellent flight characteristics, and modest price.

The 55" FMS weighs about a pound more than the Dynam and can benefit from the use of flaps. The Dynam is so light that flaps are really unnecessary - they might be fun but not generally needed. I've logged over 330 flights on mine without flaps and feel no need to install them.

I also fly my 40" FMS without flaps. But my ST 48", FMS 55", Art Tech 52", Starmax 63", and T/S 73" all have them.

With the exception of the heavy Starmax, the other flap equipped planes can be flown and landed satisfactorily without actually using the flaps.
