Is there anybody , here , who could help me about this?

We all see low wing, high wing...midle wing with flaps but, I never saw any multi plan with flaps

Is there possibly trouble, maybe like wing interference, or something with pitching moment..?

Do you know an example of a flaped ..or better, a slot flaped biplane

Thank you, aerodynamics fan!

The Hiperbipe has full span flaperons on both upper and lower surfaces.

It occurs to me just now that in all the years I had my Hiperbipe I never once tried to deploy the flaps while inverted...
