Default Fowler flap hinges

"Hinges simulate the extension path of Fowler Flaps. Much higher quality and stronger!"



Hobby Lobby order page ($7.10)....

"4 hinges per package. Each hinge is 2.3” long overall, and is made to be very strong. These hinges have a very long offset from the center of the hingeplate to the hinge line. The farther aft the hingeline is put (as far under the flap as possible) the better will the Fowler effect be simulated. An example of a Fowler Flap is the wing flap on a commercial airliner like the Boeing 727. As the flap is extended it moves aft first, then after the aft-ward movement it begins its downward movement. While these hinges don’t give a true Fowler movement, the effect is so well simulated that it is both realistic in appearance and in effect. The screw mounting tabs allow mounting after you have covered and finished the airplane."

Duh - yeah I figured that out but I also figured that there may be some people out there tuning in to see what "Fowler Flaps" are. Or, we could make like NASA and throw out or ignore the data - maybe get the moderator to banish my post to the trash?
