As I am looking at pic's of the Islander, it looks like the flaps never go all the way up. Looks like "up" is...maybe 2 or
3 degrees down. Also, anyone know the full flap (in degrees) travel.

You are correct. I flew Islanders nearly 30 years ago. I don't remember the exact degree of droop but recall that it was a performance fix after the initial design.

The droop setting was 6 degrees. I am fairly certain it was introduced with the BN-2A according to the information I found. I do not know the full travel of the flaps.

I do know the flaps had the capability to retract fully because there is an AD dated in the late 70's that addressed a situation where the flaps were inadvertantly retracting past the 6 degree norm...
