    Definitely not a 4 they they have a truss design cut into the wing ribs. So either a 2 or a 3 
    Looks like a 3 to me the red wing struts look like they have a 3/8th bolt hole in the bottom.

    One thing I wish some one would have told me is to attach the inboard hinge and the far outboard hinge then pull a string line under the flaperon to set the other two. You do this because if your a tiny bit off.  when you move the flaperon up and down it will bend the trailing edge of the wing up and down. I noticed that when I did mine.  so I pulled it off epoxied the holes shut and started over.  Live and learn I guess.

    If you are gonna do that take and C-clamp them on to the ribs and do a test fold of the wings first.

    Hope this helps too.  The welding of standoffs is optional.  Standard practice is to glue on wood ones.

    I think a guy could make them work if you wanted to take the time to actually tune them. I use to use them on sleds all the time and holy cow did they make the 2 strokes come alive from bottom to top. But you would probably toast a few engines before you got it figured out.
