Having an issue with the flex feature

I have need to design a curved "C" channel, and be able to supply manufacturing drawings. As such, I need to flatten the model. What I have done is make a base flange in the "C" profile, extruded it, and after all the required holes were added, I used the flex feature to produce my curve. This allows me to flatten the part to make manufacturing drawings, however, I have run into an issue. For some reason, the flex is tapering the inner edge of my flange on both ends. See the picture for a better idea of the problem. Has anyone else run into this problem and know of a way to fix it? Thank you for any assistance.
