Flap detents on Blaniks by spektr
If Blaniks benefit from a bit of flap when slow, why can't you add a detent to allow it. Seems to be as simple as a field approval in the log book. Allow deployment within the currently allowed speed range for flaps and viola, done. Scott

Marske Flying Wings do not stall by Marske Flying Wings
I did a modest cross country in the Pioneer IId yesterday but what is most interesting was that I am exploring all of the flight envelope and yesterday was stalls. When I pulled the stick all the way back slowly I suddenly found that my airspeed had fallen to zero where I held it for quite some...
