Manual Flaps
« on: June 29, 2017, 02:53:57 pm »
I was wondering if anyone has ever put manual flaps on a twin commander and what their results were. Id also be interested in hearing thoughts on the idea!

What do you mean by "manual" flaps?

Hi, sorry if I wasn't clear. By manual flaps I mean hand operated, rather than hydraulic or electric.

Well, to me it seems like it would require a lot of engineering to replace a system which works pretty well. And, honestly, on Commanders the flaps don't do all that much anyway.
