I'm wondering how you backup the flap actuator in case of failure while in Reflex mode.
I can't give you detailed specifics but I have made landings in an RV-10 and RV-14 with flaps in reflex and the influence is no more than occurs with all of the other RV's with the flaps fully retracted, so no special procedure/workaround is required.
With no flaps deployed the stall angle of attack is higher. Because of that you wont like rotate to anywhere near stall angle of attack during the flair and with the higher stall speed of not using any flaps, the landing will be longer but not so much that it should be an issue (RV's only require a small portion of the runway that is available at most airports).
