I want to know how you like the flaps, I have my radio set up to make my ailerons function as flaps, but I don't notice any difference at all except for reduced aileron effectiveness.I have thought of adding flaps as you have, but the reason I would like to do so, is to slave the ailerons and flaps together through radio programing so that When soaring up High and with the nose pointed into the wind, I could slightly lower both ailerons and flaps to see if I could gain a little more lift, kinda like and undercambered airfoil.

During my absense here I made several mods to my Bixler.

First is FLAPS. Nothing special. Span and length are equal to ailerons. Pinned hinges and another HTX900 servos. I reversed one servo by myself without any additional modules (weight). If someone needs photos or have questions, just ask.
