After I saw Merlinv16's full flap landings, I knew I had made the right decision to add the flaps. I also modified the elevator control controls. The stock set-up was just not right. I changed the 2 external elevator push-rods into a single internal rod. It looks better and the slop is gone. I just finished installing the bomb bay yesterday. I am sure it isn't perfect but it looks pretty good and it works. To give credit where it is due, most if not all, of my mods came from the experts here on RCGroups. This is my first electric plane as well as my first foam warbird. I wish I could do something about the small main gear. My buddy is modding his to accept 2.5 in wheels. I am trying to take pictures of the mods in case someone asks me how I did something. When I get better at the blog thing, I will add some pictures.

Thank you much, but I am sure your is very nice... and yours has actually flown. Something mine has not yet done!

I only used 1 servo per wing on the flaps. After giving it much thought, I cut a small channel through the nacelle and tied the two sections together. I epoxied a thin dowel into the two sections. It was trial and error. My port side came out cleaner than my starboard side. Then I put the servo inboard from the engine nacelle. It seems strong and free moving - so far!

Here is a picture. Please bear in mind this is my first foam a/c and my cutting skills were untried!
