Yeah, I'm a little confused here isn't this what the Improved enhancement is for?

Your roll to cast Flight on yourself would be at the penalty. If you can soak the -10 to cast it, sure, go for it.

Using sorcery there isn't any roll though. I simply give myself the advantage and pay the 1 FP cost. Unless I added unreliable or some such limitation there isn't anywhere for a partial penalty to be applied.

In which case, I would say that MR gives you Unreliable, unless it's Improved MR.
