    Performance STOL flaps

    Thinking of PSTOL flaps on my certified Cub. Now that they have been out there awhile, I am wondering if there have been any service issues. Everybody happy with them?
    I understand that most out there are experimental and I have searched the site and read all of the threads. Just wondering if any issues have come up lately.

    I think the first certified set just went on, so there might not be much feedback on those yet.

    The owner of the first set in Alaska is thrilled by his flaps and how his cub flies. Great product and great workmanship ��

    Thanks for the comments. I understand there are very few certified units out there. Thought the experimental guys would chip in. Just wondering if any service issues have shown up. The only weak link I could see are using the original flap hangers. With the doubler, i guess that was addressed. They look very well designed.
    Flew the DHC-6 for a number of years. Very impressed by that flap design.

    Airframes Alaska flaps install

    New flaps going on our supercub in Anchorage at Whitewings Aircraft, Lake Hood.
    Did the flap brackets in custom red anodizing rather than the stock gold.
    Very nice work by Airframes on them, hated to paint them they were so nice bare aluminum.suercub 1.jpegsupercub - Copy.jpegsupercub 2 - Copy.jpeg

    Do these flaps shorten the takeoff distance of float planes?

    Airframes site claims 3-5mph less takeoff/landing speed. Should work very well on floats as the flaps have lift rather than just drag like stock flaps, so should unweight to get on step far faster in my view.

    Keller Flaps

    Does anyone have experience with the Keller Double Slotted flaps on a seaplane? Do they decrease the takeoff run? How much does it change?
