Are you happy with the way it works in the plane?
How much flap throw are you able to get with that setup?

Thanks for posting the picture, and also Walter for his pictures.

well, it works... not sure it is really mandatory ! But as the servo slides by itself, it means there is an axial effort so it makes less parasit force on the system at the end.
I will measure the flap travel tomorrow.

Flap travel down 47°
Flap travel up 14°

Servo is MKS 6125 glider.

Measurements done at inner hinge (inner surface/ intrados)

I must said it is not optimised but enough travel on this model. I should be able to get 5° more (down).

Yes, with the sliding arrangement, I would hope that the wipers would be bent further to allow some more flap travel....
But it sounds like you are happy with the smoothness of the flap movement, so that is good.
I think in the end, the whole question of LDS vs RDS comes down to either being a compromise, and its up to the pilot to decide what he needs and wants from his linkages.
It is nice to have a choice though.

Another sliding frame is available from RDS swiss;

As one can see in the video, the servo moves quite considerably on the flaps, enabling large deflections.

http://www.rds-swiss.ch/

Interestingly, the frames are made by rapid prototyping. Note also the simplicity of the frame with two latches and only two screws.

They have some other interesting products, like steel pockets that can be "calibrated" to the wiper.

Best,
