    Zor,
    On my Seniorita the gap is much less than it appears in the photo, 3/32" actually. The hinge point was carefully positioned to close the gap with down deflection and open it with up deflection....

    I never looked to see what was called for on the plans, I've just always added a little washout to just about every wing I've ever built. Weather or not it helped is debatable, but it certainly never...

    By the way, It's looking good! I like the 'bumped' nose. Adds some curved to an otherwise boxy airplane. Looks like a Cessna 206 or 207 front end.

    How much 'slop' are you talking about? More than 10% of the flaperon chord when measured at the trailing edge? I had similar worries about the friese ailerons and flaps on my Seniorita, but then I...

    Really? I love my .65 Sportster. Yes, it's not a screaming power house, but simple and reliable. It's out lived many planes, including a Kadet SR, and always ran well.
