I don’t use the router to flatten boards (with the exception of a live edge piece with a major convex top). Once I figured out how to use the fore plane and jointer plane (and having them sharp!), I’ve been pretty successful at flattening boards. I try to choose wood that is flat and that can just be run through the planer for the faces. I can flatten the edges pretty quickly with the plane now.
