I just installed flaps on my Corsiar. Still learning my flap/elevator ratio but I just got to thinking maybe I should add hinge tape to the high side of the flap joints. I do not see where HH suggests it in their how to install flaps videos but is it must or just a good idea. Will it help in durability over time. I do not see it on the rudder of my T28 but I do see it on the high side of the ailerons. What can it hurt. Opinions please
The tape will only hold onto the wings and flaps as good as the paint holds onto the foam. I don't think I'd do it. I would search the Corsair threads (On other forums, too) and see what others have done successfully.
I decided to use hinge tape figured it couldn't hurt long term.
I also started with my Dx6i with flaps at 25% with elevator at -5%.
It did not work that bad but I am going to increase it to 35% next time with elevator at -10%
