FLAP KIT – For New & Old Phantoms
Flaps are now available on new Phantoms and as an upgrade for old Phantoms. Flaps allow you to slow your landing speeds, shorten takeoff and landing distances and improve, lessen aileron control forces and improve the handling of your aircraft. The flap and aileron setup for the Phantom are independent of each other. This is not a flaperon setup. The flap extends from the wing root to the first wing support wire measuring a distance of 54”. The aileron continues from the first wing support wire to the wingtip. The flaps and ailerons have the same chord as your existing full span ailerons. 10, 20 and 30 degree settings are available. The flaps are manually operated with a handle that is parallel to the wing above your head. The ailerons will now be controlled using push pull cables similar to the one used for the elevator. You will not need the old aileron cabling system.
All numbers noted here were measured from tests with an aircraft weight of 600lbs and an Electric Start Rotax 447 with 2-Blade Powerfin prop.
