OK, so what you describe now is the vane as referenced by thailazer in post #10 above. In my mind the LEX acronym is a bit misleading here..?!

Thanks a lot for chipping in BM, here are my responses to your post #32 above:

Thanks speedracerntrixie for you comment. To be honest I cannot say for sure whether my elevator/rudder got more powerful with "baffles" added. Anyway, the lowered stall speed alone makes them worth...

Well, my club buddies were just gaping in awe when I "walked by" with my Hots and they are certainly no beginners. Most of us are 70+ by now and "have seen it all". Why not try adding this gadget to...
