Default Class II carrier

Hey all,

I've been out of carrier for couple of years and and just started a new Class II Skyraider. I'll be using a line slider and was wounding if I should use flaps in conjunction with the slider.

Thx.,

Rick

Hey guys,


Thanks for the PM's.

STANG,

I got the plans from MAN. Feb. 77, Ed Martinez design. It was org. for Class I but I blew them up 25% for the larger engine. If your intrested in a copy let me know and I'll get them to ya. AZ. a pretty good area for carrier from what I hear. Anyhow let me know.

I guess if I was building a design I was unfamiliar with, I'd go ahead and make the flaps useable and try to also
make it so that it would be possible to have them stay up - then test fly it both ways. The slider probably doesn't
really affect whether you use them or not - it's more of a flying style choice. So if you can give yourself a choice
then go ahead. If it is not possible to engineer a method to disconnect, I'd probably opt to not include them - with a slider, you will probably be flying fully stalled most of the time anyway, and they don't add much at high angles of attack.
