Has anyone flown the current flap handle and the new handle to compare what the operational difference is. I am considering flying to the factory and getting one if there is an improvement in the effort to extend the flaps.

I'm bumping this thread to ask if anyone out there has any information on this new flap handle. What changes were made and how significant is the improvement? I don't want to waste time modifying my flap handle if there is already something better available.

Are these SS only improvements? or are they applicable to the Highlanders as well? This goes for both the factory and one on the Plane Fun Aircraft website.

Well I have finally flown with the new flap handle . It is better locking in the flap positions with out using a large washer on the end to lock it in position with your thumb. My best guess is it requires about 25 percent less force to get to position 3 but it is all relative to your airspeed.
