Thanks Fotor. Funny, I thought about the same low pressure area- especially at high speed. However, the springs are absurdly strong - almost mousetrap like. (I'll eventually put a small video on the forum showing spoiler and flap movement which will demostrate it.)
At this point, I'm actually more worried about them wearing out my servos as the servo arm needs to overpower the spring to deploy the spoliers. I might need to move to metal geared servos eventually.
