I know I have:( Sick of fixing it, and it does not fly in the wind like my EPP tailless gliders. Still think it is a good trainer though.

Flaps on tailless aircraft

After retiring my last combat plane, I've been building a Lippisch Li 10, which was a contemporary of the Me 163 Komet. It is a swept wing (36 degrees) with a pusher prop, typical of the early 1940's...
