X-Air "F" Model - Flaps

The "F" model or "FLAP" model is an evolution of the standard X-Air, it has three stage flaps to slow the aircraft down for landing. The wing and tail on the Flap model also differs from the standard X-Air. The flap model flies faster than the standard X-Air because of the different profile wing and the flap model also costs slightly more but comes standard with rear wheel pants, doors and wide entry.
