    hi,
    I am looking through the plans of an Mc15, and am wondering how exactly the flaperon system works.
    According to the plans there are 4 seperate flaps.
    Are those inboard ones for the takeoff and landing flaps and the outboard are ailerons, or are they connected together to funktion as a flaperon?
    And if the former is the case where is the linkage to controll the ailerons?
    Sur appreciate any info,
    truely
    John

    they are connected...flaperon!
    they are built in 2x 2 parts because of flexion of the wing.
    that is the same thing on MC100 Bambi, MCR, and Pennec Gaz'aile.

    The linkage to control the flapperons is a ball joint that sticks into the side of the fuselage, the joint is connected after you install the wings and is disconnected before the wings are removed.

    Thanks for that movie, it shows it very clearly.
    I assume, the inboard and outbourd parts of the flaps are joined, and move as one piece.
    Do you fly, or own a cricri?
    I see the lever to the left is for the flapssetting.
    The plans say 35° max down, and 15° up.
    Would you know where the max travel stops are for flaps and ailerons? I can hear them on the video.
    And also, how much travel is there for the flaps? Because if I use 35°, they would still dropp a bit, using ailerons.
    So full flaps are probably around 30°, so as not to exceede 35° ?
    I also foungd travel for the elevator, but none for the rudder.
    Thanks, John
