Epoxearl,

Not going to say that your Bearcat fix was wrong (how could it be if it worked??) but my understanding is that symetrical flap deployment of a given wing system usually ENHANCES washout effect. Could it be that moving the ailerons " up' re-attached a separated airflow?

Speaking of turbulet airflow, highly tapered wings and washout, there was an interesting fix to a small rubber scale model over on Hip Pocket. Fellow added a 1/32 sq strip at at extreme top aft TE. Provided enhanced washout effect.

Chad,
Good to see you still around. Any progress on the Mustang?
