Default flap seals

4150 is coming along. Nose to tail is thru silver and the wing is covered and first coat of pink. Too cold now to go any further till spring. Just wondering how does anyone do the control surfuses seals? Are they needed or are there better ways of doing them. John

Hi John,
As far as I know, with the M-18L there was no seals on them but on the search site some used them on the later models.
I'm looking at playing with them as we speak. Small things make a difference so experimenting with good records will help to know if it is worth it. Woody

Thanks Woody for the reply. I'm going to do more research myself and I'll post what I find also. Thanks John

Smile flap seals

Try a strip of aluminum (lightweight) about one inch wide on top of trailing edge of wing. Screw down in several places with small screws that does not interfere with the aileron movement. Easily removed and can be changed out in a minute or less to add more width. Keep close records until you get the combination you want. Easy and efficient.

Good idea. I'll experiment with that this winter. Thanks John
