YES, that is what I was trying to bring up.I think the core question is how far from the wing can a Junkers flap be mounted before the air treats it as a separate airfoil rather than part of the wing.
I mentioned that I do accept the idea that a deflected control surface changes the load on the airflow, making more lift and everything that goes along with it. That is the core of my question, is there a difference between aerodynamically effective AoA and geometric AoA?
Is the wing chord line a line between the leading edge of the wing and the trailing edge of the elevator on a Cessna? Is the chord line a line between the leading edge of the front wing of a Flea and the trailing edge of the rear wing?
