Iíve had to remove my flaps a few times after attaching the wings, for example to better trim inboard skin clearance to the fuselage. The wings were a bear to get on, and I never ever want to have to remove or reinstall those spar bolts. I would def. want to make sure the hinge pins could be removed with the wing attached.

Default Flap

Canít imagine the pain to pull a wing if needed ÖÖ. Not something I want to do . Also installing a wing with a flap already attached doesnít sound fun either.

Wings complete. After much consternation of future issues and the nudges from others including those who responded on here, I got with the hinge program and did it like Vans recommends. Fuse kit coming next month!
