Default Ziroli 70" P-47

I have been flying my Ziroli 70" P-47 for many years. I have had the Flaps Set at 20 and 45 degrees. Is the 45 degrees the norm in Warbirds or should I change it a little?

Better question...Does it work for you?
I use more than 75 degrees of flap on my TF P-51. At those angles, it is more of a speed brake. I use throttle to control the descent. Much easier to me than judging the glide path on our short paved runway.

Yes, I have been flying it fine with the 45 degree flap setting. That being said, I might want to up it to 50 degrees and see what the plane feels like. I might like it better.

With the 75 degree flap, does the plane want to get to slow as you round out for 2 point landing?

Not at all. I cut power about 1-2 feet off the runway and let her settle on the mains. At full flap, she sticks like glue. At half-flap, she can bounce if not careful. Of course, your plane may react differently.
