Default Spirit Wing Additions / Modifications

Hiya,
After have some fun with my first glider (a Spirit 2M), I am in the process of making an e-spirit by building and modifying a 2nd fuze...

Since I am building the 2nd one from a kit as well, I will have all the stuff I need to make a 2nd set of wings...

I am thinking about modifying these wings to also include ailerons on the outer part of the wing...
I have looked at the manuals for the Spirit 100M & Elite and I think it is possible to do. However, these also include Flaps...

Has anyone done this or has heard of this being done with a standard Spirit 2M kit???
Any other comments???

Thanks

Default RE: Spirit Wing Additions / Modifications

I have both the Spirit and Spirit Elite, modified to electric. Neither has or needs ailerons.
Spoilers, yes, but I've not felt any need for ailerons.
But it is a simple addition if you do it.
