How do you control and see flaps going down for take off position???
Well, after several attempts at it..I finally figure it out..twice I managed to take off..trick is start off slowly then progress to a faster speed and let the plane do the rest with a little pull back on the stick..not much though causes the tail to hit the ground that causes more problems..
Landing is another story but did manage to land with out too much problems other than ran out of runway..LOL
It's notable that normal takeoffs in the 51 are made with the flaps UP. The "take off" position at 20 degrees (the flap handle housing should be marked at every 10 degrees from 10 through 50. Actually the last full down is 47 degrees)
is only used when runway length is an issue. At 20 degrees flaps, the wing's lift capability is maximized at a lower airspeed and earlier rotation becomes possible.
