I don't know what is under the film on my AP wings, but they look almost as good as new 20+ years later...

Yes, the landing speed of the AP is high, so I had also thought about adding flaps for landing only. I don't have the best of landing zones, but, in spite of the speed, I have never crashed the Alpina on landing. Perhaps it's BECAUSE of the high speed . So, I haven't bothered. I'm sure they would work: flaps is flaps (is flaps)...

The Alpina is TOUGH! I recently crashed the plane twice (from flight) whilst showing off too much for that video I shot, and the first time it sustained no damage at all . I have finished repairing the boom break from the second time, and the wings have needed no work at all!
