I'm trying to decide how long the flaps should be...so far all I've been able to come up with is using the Eflite 25e Cub as an example. It's flaps are 60% of the total available control surface area. (ailerons 15 5/8'", flaps 10 3/8")

On my CG Cub the total available control surface area is 28 1/2"...so using 60% gives me -

Ailerons: 17"
Flaps: 11 1/2"

Anyone with any suggestions? Comments?
For my build on this Build Log I made my flaps 9" long and the Ailerons about 19-1/4" long, but I have not yet made my maiden flight. As soon as I make my first few flights I will post a response of my findings. Also, I found that I was not happy with the CG cowl and I might check into the 1/6 scale super cub cowl.
