Great Planes 40 size Piper Cub Kit Cub4P02

I have a GP 40 size Cub kit I built about 8 years ago. I want to put in on floats and add flaps or flaperons. The current flaps use one servo mounted in the center of the wing. I cannot really figure out where to add another servo. There does not seem to be room.

Has anyone got any advice?

Thanks

Hi there, have you looked at Sailplane servos? They're built small with tabs to mount them flat in a thin wing. You'll still have to do some surgery and build a servo tray for them.This was my first hit in google querying <sailplane servo>

If you try it go light on the elevator mix. A little bit goes a loooonnggg way.
I always mix in too much and then when I hit the switch the plane dives like a
Stuka on a bombing run

cheers,
