Default Lets Discuss Flaps...

I have a fairly modded E-Flight Apprentice that I am ready to add flaps to. I have it set up with a Spektrum DX8 now, and have been utilizing "Flaperons" via programming. I am looking at 2 styles of flaps.

1.) Conventional flaps that are very much just like an inner set of ailerons that are operated down as a pair...

2.) And the type that I have seen on some planes that are like an added flap on the bottom of the wing that flip down, but are not an actual cut out of the wing. They are more like just adding a wall that flips down to add drag, but the original wing stays the same.

Thoughts on this?
