F3J/F5J flap deployment setup.

I have always used proportional 'brakes' but it took me a while to learn to use them proportionally.  I used to move the stick in an 'all or nothing' way and often miss putting my floaty little F3K models exactly where I wanted them - not a big problem as you can move to meet the model for rapid relaunching in F3K

I have started F5J now and found I had to learn proportional braking to get my spot landings right - for me, I couldn't seem to manage the energy of the more massive lumbering glider accurately in a 'bang bang brakes' way - you can't move the spot to meet the model!

Quite probably the best post in this whole thread
