Forgotten Flaps

Ever been distracted on take off, then wondered why cruise performance was so poor? They go so much better with the flaps up!

I mounted a door switch (try wreckers, electronic shops, burglar alarm shops) in the top indent hole. With no flaps, the button is depressed. When you move to first or second stage the switch closes and activates a flashing red jumbo LED on the panel. Also reminds you to retract flaps when taxiing.
