Yes, the torque increases as shaft speed decreases. Obviously, it's the same motor. Only the gearing changes. Anyone know what the specs [speed/torque/distance] are on the original flap actuator sold by Vans?

Install instructions can be downloaded from the web site.
Some builders have had to modify their actuators to limit max flap deflection to prevent the top of the flap skin from popping out from under the wing trailing edge such that the wing trailing edge gets bent in retraction. Can this be easily done on your actuator?

Hi Pat,

For some reason that PM you sent never came through. Could you try sending it again?
