Well, I don't know, I thought you were talking about ailerons, but flaps are different matter. You can keep the single servo aileron set up and still add flaps. You would still want to mount the...

I assume by "dual ailerons" you actually mean dual servos. Or do you really mean you want to add extra ailerons?
As for dual servos, I haven't done it to an MKII, but I have to a couple other planes...

I also built the GP P51. I won't do single servo mechanical retracts again on a plane this size for the same reason. On a plane this small, the servo linkage and adjustment on the retracts have to be...

I agree with JohnBuckner. If you want to build a kit, great! The Tiger is a good one, so is the Stick. If you want a good easy and inexpensive first kit, get an Uproar. But don't quit flying in order...
