Default Dura-Plane with Flaps?

Flaperons and trainers usually don't go together well.

The result is usualy an increase in the "adverse yaw" when using ailerons. This can lead to the student applying more and more aileron, trying to overcome the turn, and then the plane suddenly tip-stalls, and smacks the ground. I've had adverse yaw with one plane that would overcome the ability of the rudder to correct for it. Newbies would tend to forget to use the rudder to ATTEMPT to fix the problem.

Best not to add the weight and complications. (even though its not much weight....)
