Why not just use flapperons? I have no experiance with the apprentice, but my alpha has flaperoins. They work well, do not balloon upwords and increase lift. Stall is much slower, but requires much more power to keep the plane moving forwards and off the ground. Makes the aleroins less touchy. I can fly the plane the exact same or slower without them by using up elevator and landing nose up. They do greatley reduce top speed and help climb. They also do not change stalling characteristics and make the rudder slightly more resposive.
