Flaps mod

I know there are many different ideas on how to mod the EZ* the best way, but I really think I need the extra lift and speed reduction on the landings. So, I decided to make flaps. They are quite large and will be operated by a Hitec HS-55.

On the picture above I marked where to cut.

Done the cutting. I also marked where the servo wire will go. As you can see, I added a carbon strip just above the aileron servo in this picture. I'm certain I need that extra stability where the carbon rod in the wing doesn't reach.

I changed my mind regarding the servo wire. A shorter way must be a better way...
