    in this area it is more compression than flexion i guess, so the fiber tank helps a lot for this. if it was mine, i would go for repair and special care between each flight

    so to resume : -3 ° is up flap, everyone got is own rigging in range of -3/+3
     i will go for about a gently 0° first ;°)

    rigging flaps
    manual says  -3 ° for better crus speed ...so it is up or down? personally i would go for 3° down, so when you push for speed, the AoA decrease and flap finally is 0° in relative wind so less draggy.....or... -3 is up cause the flap airfoil chord is not the bottom flat line, so flap is 0° when bottom is -3
    i'm lost and don't feel very confortable with the idea of flying with up reflexing flaps

    this is a little drawing i made few days ago cause was wondering about brakes.
    the idea, push them from bottom to simplify linkage and so put brake on side where they not take to much place in the small cockpit. may be it can be more simple by placing brake in middle Y, but i'm rope start so i personally can't
    By the way i stay origin for now , will see after test flights
