No Hayate expert, but AKAIK...

The flaps are located under the wing, the extensions you see are the "guide rails" (for lack of better word).

Imagine the flaps being on the underside of the wing, extending behind the trailing edge.

Is it just me, or is there an Imperial Stormtrooper flying that Ki-84?

Its not a Storm Trooper, but it is Imperial (istic)

"-When in doubt, empty your magazine.
-Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you are.
-Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
-If your attack is going really well, it's an ambush.
-No plan survives the first contact intact.
-All 5 second grenade fuses burn down in 3 seconds." Excerpt from Murphy's Laws
