How I added flaps to my Cessna 182

Three years ago I bought a Cessna 182 (Art Tech) but I had only flown 2 times because it had a brushed motor.
A few months ago I decided to upgrade the plane to a brushless motor and yesterday I had the idea to modify the wing to add flaps.
So I'll post a few pictures of the process:


The wing before the process:



I cut what it would be the flaps:



On the other side too:



A few marks for the servo hole:



Making the servo hole:



It fits ok, but I have to make it a bit deeper:



Servos holes done:


They fit very good so they doesn't change the aerodynamics:



A hole to put the servo's cable in:



Soldering the 2 servos together (I had to reverse one servo before):



Process finished!!
