...The hinges support the board but will add some stays as well to keep the angle perfectly flat...
Neat idea, suspect you'll find sales for that hinge design if you make it available for others to print.

What sort of stay are you planning? If the furniture will accomodate it, then slide out bars underneath (traditional support on drop flap desks) are very stable; and if you are feeling ambitious there can be a locking mechanism that won't allow the drop flap to come down until the supports are extended; prevents hinges being strained by dropping the flap without the stays in place to receive it.
