If MCAS only activates with no flap deployed, and activates more aggressively at slower speed and therefore likely lower altitude, then I think that my first action on intermittent runaway stab trim close to the ground might be to pop out flaps 1 and see if that stops it immediately. Just a thought.

Of course the pilot would have to actually know of the existence of the system and its limitations first in order to be able to do that. The Lion Air crew didn't
