Hello! How may I assist your shopping experience? Did you have a question about the timber?
Hi Joe...... I have a tech question about he Timber I ordered..... The wing slats ? What is the difference in how it flies slats VS. no slats ? do you know?
Joe C.
yes the slats act like flaps do-- they give a little more lift and some drag to help the plane fly slower
effectively they increase wing area and help the wing lift more
Great..... Thanks. So if I want more speed and stunt ability leave the slats off? Slower Short take off and slow speeds put them on , is that what I understand?
Joe C.
that's right
Thanks for your help..... I look forward to getting the plane , I hope in mid July
Joe C.
you're welcome
Have a great day
Joe C.
