    I've thought about this too.  I think the "normal" VGs for a wing may be too large for a flapperon, but the theory is sound on their operation.  They would help if you are having flapperon inversion issues...

    I see...
    This may be a good option for people with the really old 912 engines with the "aluminum box" style ignition system.

    That is what I paid for new modules two years ago from LEAF.  There are different configurations, this was the newest version.  I had to change plugs on the engine to match it.   The ones with the same plugs as my engine was $1500 each.

    Love the 115 gallons of fresh water and built in genny in my new rig.  Can boondock for 11 days at OSH no worries...

    Here are some details of our party.
    Thursday afternoon starting at 4-ish my wife and I will host our 5th annual "Flapperon Party" at our campsite (EAA Chapter UL75).  Food and beverages will be provided.  After the party we all venture over to the STOL demo.  This is a change from previous years where we held it on Friday.  We (and everyone else) have too many schedule conflicts on Friday.

    Should be a good turn out this year!  Looking forward to meeting a bunch of you guys...

    Keep in mind that synthetic oil will not begin to coke until over 400º F.  Even the semi-synthetic Sport +4 will easily handle 300º or more with out degrading.  The 230º number is extremely conservative IMO.
    These engines like to run hot and fast.  That's what they are designed to do.

    I'll be there all week down on the Ultralight Farm.  If you can stay to Thursday, this is the day of the party at my campsite.
