There is a "Baron" flap setting on the indicator which is a little less than 20degrees. Also, with ours (Mk2000 Baron STOL kit) the flap setting is limited to "Landing" at the most. It is blocked off from going to "Full Flap".

No need for any flap in cruise and get 125mph cruise with the Wip6000 Amphibs

The MK 2000 that I flew had a setting of "Baron" that we used instead of Take Off. We never had a restriction for full flap.

Just thought I would resurrect this thread for other guys besides myself starting out on the beaver this upcoming float season. You have to take some of the comments with a grain of salt but all and all it seems there is a wealth of experience here.

Truly a wealth of information here! The ol' girl is well supported with many fans and pilots who have flown her!

Take good care of that 985 and it'll do the same for you.

You lean it like any other engine, just a bit rich of peak.
