We have found that the first production run of the Pawnee 15e was missing one hinge on each flap. If you do not use the optional flap system you will not encounter any issues at all. This missing hinge will not affect flight at all. If you elect to cut the flaps loose, you will notice that the flap only has one hinge. You will need to install one CA type hinge 5-1/2 inches outboard from the root of the flap. This will enable you to use the flap system designed into this model.
We are very sorry for this inconvenience and this issue has been resolved in future production runs. We thank you for your understanding and wish you many great flights with your Pawnee 15e.
The actual wing span of the EFL Pawnee 15e is 60 inches (1525mm) and not the stated 62 inches. We appologize for this inconvenience.
