    Note the cove gap tapering to the outlet and hinge line.

Unless it flows well to help then a seal simply reduces any loss of pressure air from below or above and makes the control more effective (like the aileron).

    Gary, I learned to fly in a 7AC and do like the entire series of models, however their controls are sloppy at low speeds. The current manufacturer has an optional spade which is supposed to correct the aileron's sloppiness. It is only a band aid. The airplane does pass all certification requirements, however...........................

    We can discuss this in depth if you wish but let's do it on another thread than Oli's.

    I started a new thread here so the discussion of slots and seals can develop further.
