If/when my flaps decide to part company with the wing (hopefully on the bench, not on short final), I may try to set them up as Fowler flaps. Such flaps have a LOT more effect, which this plane could use. They basically increase the wing area when you deploy them, and the slot in front causes them to increase lift a LOT more... meaning you can slow down a lot more without falling out of the sky. See the fourth example, at the bottom. Will take some work, but what's a mother to do.
