That's what I was initially talking about . Just the LONG flap spring , sans connector . ::) Eliminates another piece of monkey motion in the setup . :o

Among the goodies that came with the airplane is a single long spring. I think he told me it was clutch spring from a truck. I thought about trying it. I don’t see where it would matter trying it on one side but I balked at the idea of both sides not being the same.

I have used truck clutch springs for thirty years. No problems.
