Dont have pictures as I am not allowed to take them. But the ones here don't have flaps.... Of course it might depend what version you were interested in. there are only half a dozen or so!

Doing a "B". Its actually the HK that i am going to uncover, strengthen, and add flaps if the real one has it. It will be a night flyer.

yes it has flaps... actually... two flaps per side.... and two ailerons per side....

the whole wing trailing edge is used to optimize the camber to the flight condition...

how do I know??? I did the layout and design of the majority of the wing!!
