    Just a thought on the bouncing, it may be that the wing is still producing lift at landing speed and the bounce is the result of the wing still trying to fly, if you reflex (up about 5mm) the...

    That's the problem with getting older, they break easier and take longer to repair, bit like jets. :cool:

    On the flaps vs reflexed ailerons, it all accords what is trying to be achieved, flaps up to about 45 degs will enable the aircraft to float i.e. under cambered wing section producing more lift at...

    What make you say it does not need crow, if it floats with flap then crow may stop that, they act as spoilers whilst giving wash out to the wing, surprising how well most jets will descend under...
