In the 80's my friend had a MEN trainer. He modified it to have outer ailerons and large inner flaps.

It was capable of very short takeoffs and landings, just like the tundra cubs in Alaska.
I remember that it did not like cross wind with the flaps down. He crashed it by no fault of the plane, and still needs to repair the broken wing, this time he wants to put in a stabilized receiver to help stop the squirrellyness when close to the ground and during takeoff.

CooL!
I actually thought about doing that when I had to repair the wing. Nice to know someone did it successfully! She is squirrelly- that long arm between motor and rudder / rudder and CG makes for some anxious moments on takeoffs. Landings aren't too bad.
