I must say your posts are very motivating.... great job Sir.
yeah, i plan to fly it without flaps. most planes ive ever had didnt have flaps. i dont have a lot of experience with balsa wood working, but i was thinking that if i wanted to do flaps, i would cut some split-flaps into the bottom of the wing. that way, the top of the wing wouldnt be affected at all. im going with 2 blades to begin with. since a 7" prop is about as big as i can go, im going with a higher kv, and some more performance. but, i like this plane so much, i might try some 3 or 4 blade props & spinners in the future. they'de look REALLY good on this plane.
