You would tear off the flaps IF you could even extend them at unsafe aerodynamic pressure (I would assume system does not allow that). Even worse, you would partially tear of only one of them, sending plane into unrecoverable spin and end up as pile of smoking debris on the ground, with investigators wondering what the hell were you doing when extending flaps at 300kts, let alone 400kts.
Are you really an airline pilot?!
It's now clear that the procedure you propose (flaps not up + manual electric stab trim) is by far superior to anything Boeing have produced yet in case of AOA disagree on a 737 MAX with MCAS v1.
But let's not forget that pilots did not have the luxury of reading their own accident report and going from there. If this procedure really works then this is another damning evidence against Boeing who had months after lion air to design AND test emergency procedures before Ethiopian went down.
