Hello Chris. After reading the Wilga pilots notes it would appear the problem does indeed  lie with the flaps. Ref the photo I mentioned. Google, scroll down to
OZ: PZL wilga 35 plan-free download-outerzone that should bring you to the page with the photo, there are a couple of downloads which will show the full write up.
Any problem come back to me. Ref the Dornier, not sure if I have any photo's left, my wife goes to the UK Wednesday, I will look and see if I have any. What was
interesting with the Dornier was we actually got to fly in the full size! Peter.

Thanks Peter I have that now.

 I Hope you have some luck with Dornier pics. Was flying in the fullsize related to building the model or did the ride inspire the build ?

Check if an exit slot of the slots is smaller (thinner) than the entrance one.

Marcin that is the opposite to what I would have expected I will check that out too

On Channel 4 last night there was a programme about Nigel Farridge. Remember when he crashed in a lightplane around 2010? A Wilga! Quite a nice blue scheme, as far as I could make out, although it was rather bent.

Maybe I should paint mine blue and carve a little Farage for the passengers seat... I might get more marks for the glide angle that way ??

Hey don't do that Chris Smiley Problems exist to give one the excitement of solving them - or something like that. What is the situation now Chris? Are the slots covered and what Cg are you now flying at?

..actually I meant that the model is already doing that on it's own !!!

It's on my to do list John, I still need to finish the Tomtit wings first and a peanut Piper Cub seems to have jumped the queue.

The plan is to remake the flaps so they fit much closer efectively sealing the air gap
