Default fowler flap hinge control hookup

i have a plane with some hinges that simulate a fowler flap (similar to how the top flite cessna 182 hinges work....got the plane in the bare bones stage with no control rods installed. how should I go about driving the flaps? doesn't look like I can use a control horn and wire to pull it down without it binding as the flap moves slightly rearward when it comes down.

The TF Cessna's flaps have a control horn that is inside the wing structure. It works great. Here's the manual and the flap horn is shown on pg 11.
