I know, I know! :oops:
I have no illusions that with 30 feet of landing area to , I will pull my handle to full flaps and drop her in.
I will do 1/3 on downwind, 1/3 on base and full flaps on final.
It's how I learned and know.
I kept the handle so maybe one day,,,,,,,,, :lol:
Oh,,,,, and I still have my nose wheel just in case!!!!!!!!

I'm just curious how you put electric flaps in a Highlander, pretty cool :D

It's a 2" throw, 150 lb pull 2 second servo. The holes line up in just about the same place as the handle holes would. No frame mods. Works fast, or slow depending on the model servo you get. I also have but decided not to use a 4 button programable flap switch.

Very nice, I didn't think that could be done on a highlander. :o This is exactly what is so great about this forum, the sharing of lots of great ideas :idea: :D

I had a great time flying the highlander for the first time with Vic Payne (of Billy and Vic Payne's Highlander "ranch") and it went great but one thing became painfully apparent. My right leg is bowed considerably from a motorcycle accident so when the flap control handle is raised to any position it shoves my right foot off the rudder pedal. So I'm thinking of going with an electric flap servo. Several of you guys have installed these. How do you like them and whose stuff did you get? Right now I'm considering some Vans RV-6 gear.....Thanks for thinking this over.
Plan not to be the first at the scene of the accident!
