I found this plane far to Fragile. Crack the fuse riding in back seat.Also had to mod the wing struts as they popped off all the time. Landing gear was pure crap as well. Was outstanding preformer thou. I had mine with eflite 400 outrunner an 1320 3cells
I would only recomend this plane to old men who like to fly scale and will handle this bird with most care. I quickly sold mine for a huge loss an bought the P-47D warbird.
I'm a hugh eflite fan but this plane is a pile of dog squeeze, hearing from friends at hobbyzone they get loads of complaint calls about this bird.
Save your money buy somthing else.
Also about the flaps, I run the O5MS
RX use the 5th " channel 6 " for flaparons but never needed for this bird had more than enough power and it does glide very well.
