Put in all you can get - either contacting the structure or running out of servo throw. I have mine set up so they stop when touch the wing structure.

I also have 10% elevator mixed in to prevent the ballooning and it seems to do fine. Just let the plane slow down before deploying flaps and you'll very little if any ballooning. Deploy at high speed and you probably will see some.

Thank you. I made the suggested changes and will fly again Mon or Tues.

I'm surprised at how well this thing flies given its weight.
