This will give you a better idea about the Moveable "Leading Edge"

on a Buttercup... They are connected to the Flaps...

More Flaps equals more leading edge "Extended"

Just like "Jets" use this feature to reshape their Airfoil...

It makes the Rib "Taller" and a longer Cord...

These features were first use in 1919...( Buttercup is 1938 )
.
Anywho,
Here's some pix... I'll do a little splaining...

It would be better to read about it at my Building Log.
